Mr Riggs Montepulciano d'Adelaide 2017
The Montepulciano fruit has been sourced from two different vineyards in the Adelaide region; Amadio vineyard, between Kersbrook and Williamstown in the Adelaide Hills, located at 300m altitude, it is also relatively low vigour and on grey-brown loam and Pollux vineyard situated in McLaren Vale, at 175m elevation on clay loam. The fruit ripens earlier, with much more tannin and lower acidity – all features that make it perfect as a severe dry red.
