Montepulciano 2016, De La Terre, Hawkes Bay
Out of stock
A very deep, rich dark hue with massive intensity of colour. Savoury black olive and black cherry aromas supported by some toasty French Oak. A big structured mid-palate with heaps of depth. The mid-palate tannin ‘flesh’ is very much a feature of the style.
A dark, savoury and rich red.
Hawke’s Bay’s only earth brick winery. A small family-run business, owned and operated by Tony and Kaye Prichard, and Gracie, the Winery Dog. They produce small volumes of high quality wines with the emphasis on elegance, texture and balance. The name ‘de la terre’ literally meaning ‘of the earth’, is a reference to both the vineyard soils and the earth brick construction used for our the winery and cellar door.
Aged for approximately 18 months in French barriques, approximately 40% new.
Un-fined and unfiltered.
