Montepulciano d'Adelaide Hills by Mr. Riggs 2013

Montepulciano d'Adelaide Hills

by Mr. Riggs 2013

Producer : Mr. Riggs

Region : Australia (Australia), South Australia (Australia)

Bottle Per Case : 12 x 750 ml

Tasting Notes

Crimson ruby red in colour, with purple tinges, the Mr. Riggs Montepulciano has a savoury aroma of light pepper, dried herbs (namely oregano), followed by a faint dried rose petal perfume and a gentle raspberry lift. The palate is very true to the aromas; savoury, light, raspberry and lighter red berry fruit on the palate wrapped up with velvety tannins and a hint of dried citrus peel on the back palate. Absolutely delicious, drinking beautifully now or over the next 5 years, and a very suitable partner to a large array of dishes.
