James Halliday – So light, so grapey, so drinkable. Flavour, sweetness and fizz are all in softly, softly mode, a gentle steely/citrusy aspect helping to keep things moving along in the most pleasant of ways. - Campbell Mattinson

About This Wine

The Grapes

Montevecchio Moscato 2022 is made from 100% Moscato Giallo, a cultivar of Moscato originating from north-eastern Italy. The Giallo clone, not to be confused with Muscat of Alexandria, was chosen for its quality factors showing intensely perfumed florals, and its elegance and intensity in the mouth. Moscato giallo was imported into Australia by the Chalmers family in the late 1990s.

The Vineyard

Chalmers Heathcote Vineyard is in the northern part of the Heathcote GI in Central Victoria, Australia and was established in 2008. The vineyard is farmed with a soil health and sustainability focus. The site is warm and well suited to sun loving Italian varieties. It is planted on the east-facing slope of the Mt Camel range. The elevation of the vineyard ranges from 150 to 225 metres above sea- level where the soil is comprised of the famous red Cambrian earth of the region.

The Winemaking

Montevecchio Moscato is made from 100% Moscato Giallo grapes that are pressed and wild fermented on solids in stainless steel tank. The wine is fermented very cold, under 10 degrees, and is a long slow ferment. Fermentation is deliberately stopped when the alcohol (only 5.5.%) and sugar are in balance, by intense chilling. The wine is then spritzed during storage in a charmat tank before being bottled, resulting in a lightly frizzante style.

The Wine

This refreshing, light and fruity wine has just a hint of spritz, allowing the bright sherbet, elderflower and honeysuckle flavours of the moscato giallo grape to take centre stage. It balances alcohol of just 5.5%, acidity and sweetness perfectly in a style reminiscent of the great wines of Asti.

Heathcote Wines

The Heathcote wine region in central Victoria is well known for its excellent red wines, most notably Shiraz. Heathcote reds are defined by their inky depth of colour, and deep, dark complex fruit flavours. This is combined with well balanced tannins and acid that help to give the wines great cellaring potential.

All this is made possible by the terroir. The Heathcote region sits at between 160m and 380m elevation with a temperate climate of even rainfall. The soils are rich in calcium red soils made up of “greenstone”. These soils are prized for their water retention capabilities allowing them to drain freely but still hold enough water throughout the growing season. The grapes that result are small and concentred which in turn make rich concentrated wines.
