Limited Release Montepulciano 2023

Brown Brothers

Minimum order of 1 case or 6 bottles (Mixed or straight)

More than half a century ago John C. Brown started experimenting with alternative grape varieties, among them - Montepulciano (or 'Monte' for short). We have since devoted a small block at our Heathcote vineyard in Central Victoria to growing this premium red grape: one of the finest and more innovative varietals we make at Brown Brothers. The Limited Release Montepulciano is enigmatic and generous in fruit, with moderate acidity and a full-bodied palate. Drink now, or cellar for 3-5 years.

Food Pairings

A wide array of traditional Italian dishes such as tomato-based pastas and spicy pizza. Or why not try it with a smoked lamb cutlets and roasted Mediterranean vegetables. It is also a fantastic combination with lighter washed rind cheeses.

To retain the fresh aromatics of the Montepulciano the wine was stored in older French oak for 6 months.
