WOODSTOCK NAUGHTY MONTE MONTEPULCIANO
Wine brands come and go, yet Woodstock Wine stands as sturdy as the stocks it was named after.A pillar of the McLaren Vale wine region, Woodstock has lovingly committed to capturing the essence of our regional home in a bottle since 1973.
It begins in their McLaren Vale vineyards, this love for capturing quality, and carries through every process from the vine to the bottle. The Woodstock wine portfolio encompasses wines for every occasion, from a range of aromatic whites and rosé, lush yet finely structured reds, and an enduring range of after dinner wines.
There is a little rascal hiding in all of us; a sometimes naughty side. A mischievous bon vivant who loves the good times and late wild nights. This character symbolizes the nature of this Italian grape variety.
Delicate red fruit aromas on the nose with a crazy savoury structure on the palate. They planted this intriguing variety at our estate in McLaren Vale and Mundulla in 2010 before the rules changed preventing them calling it Montepulciano. Hence the naughty name.
Bright, dense and deep purple in colour. Dark morello cherries, juniper berries, spearmint and dark chocolate on the nose. Full-bodied and robust with well-integrated tannins and a velvety texture balanced by mid-palate supple fruit characters and acidity. Long, smooth with a spicy finish, this wine can easily cellar for 2 to 4 years.
Halliday Rating 90/100

"An expressive bouquet directly leading to the palate of cherries dipped in dark chocolate; tobacco and spice also join in the party. A fun wine."
