From the meticulously tended Chalmers Heathcote vineyard comes the Montevecchio range of wines. The site is perfectly situated on the east facing slope of the Mt Camel Range, comprised of the famous red earth of the region. The twenty hectare vineyard has been planted to thirteen different varieties, predominantly Italian. The name Montevecchio translates literally as ‘old mountain’ referring to the ancient Cambrian origins of these soils.
The Chalmers’ years of experience in viticulture, and their passion for Italian varieties is matched by the care and expertise of winemaker Sandro Mosele. Sandro's minimal intervention style allows the varieties and terroir to shine through in these food friendly wines.
This refreshing light and fruity wine has just a hint of spritz, allowing the bright sherbet, elderflower and honeysuckle flavours of the Moscato Giallo to take centre stage. It balances sweetness, acidity and alcohol perfectly in a style reminiscent of the great wines of Asti.
"Moscato is the party tipple of the moment and this is one of the best, using Chalmers family selected moscato giallo vines with winemaker Sandro Mosele teasing out a lightly spritzed, vibrant, tropical fruited beauty. "
