Mercer 2021 Rosso Montepulciano
Made by leading Hunter winemaker Aaron Mercer, this Pinot Grigio is a great new addition to the Wine House line up. Born and bred in the Hunter, Aaron studied environmental sustainability, biological farming and ecological management and completed a postgraduate degree in Oenology at the University of Adelaide. Aaron is crafting sustainable varietals from NSW with his flair of accuracy and creativity.
Montepulciano is a red wine grape variety originating in Italy but it has taken off like a rocket in Australia in recent years. In true Australian style, it's generally referred to here as 'Monte' !
This great release from Aaron Mercer has rich, dark boysenberry and dried herb aromas with textured mint chocolate fruit characters. It has a driving synergy of delicate oak and acidity.
