Cracka Review

Here's something a little different that would go well with your mid-week seafood. There's plenty of apples and stone fruits on the nose, along with some subtle soft spice for added lift. The palate is light to medium-bodied, with crisp, clean flavours, crunchy acidity, and a refreshing finish.

Winemaker's Notes

Want to simplify your life? We’ve done it for you. Montevecchio wines need no long-winded jargonistic descriptions or pain-staking food matching advice. They’re just delicious drinks.

Montevecchio wines are all about simplicity and fun, but never boring. Grown at our Heathcote vineyard in central Victoria, which is home to over 20 different Italian grape varieties, the name means 'old mountain' referring to the Cambrian origins of the regions famous red soils.

Montevecchio Bianco is a co-fermented field blend made from Vermentino (82%), Fiano (16%) and a small percentage of Moscato Giallo (2%).

Fresh and fruity yet savoury, this wine shows notes of ripe white peach, fresh cut red apple and minerals. It is crisp yet giving on the palate with a clean dry finish.

Expert Reviews

Campbell Mattinson (2015 Vintage) says

Co-fermented field blend of Vermentino (82%), Fiano (16%) and Moscato Giallo (2%). As an aside, the Montevecchio website is interesting for the way it pitches to a specific market. Within its style/theme it’s pretty well done too.

This is an easy wine to recommend. It feels and tastes good, and then finishes with a confident burst of flavour. Stone fruit, spice, chalk and wax. There’s a musky, floral, almost rosewater-like character here – which does nothing but add appeal. It’s a delicious drink, interesting, textural, with lots of spark.

Campbell Mattinson (2014 Vintage) says
A co-fermented blend of Vermentino (mostly), Fiano and a smidgen of Moscato Gallo. All natural yeast. Fundamentally textural white wine. Perfumed and pretty in general, though crisp, but its key appeal is the way it feels as it rolls through the mouth. Stone fruits and spice. Almost into apricot. But dry. Not hard to enjoy, that’s for certain.
James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
A blend of vermentino, fiano and moscato giallo; whether the total is greater than the sum of the parts I have no idea, but there are some interesting flavours here, including spiced baked apple. For the wine nerds, for sure.
