Smidge ‘Uno Momento’ Montepulciano 2017

The Monte (as the variety is often abbreviated to) is a new addition to the stable.  Now based in McLaren Vale, Smidge is exploring new varietals from the region.  Matured in 2-3 year old French oak barrique, this wine is deep red with an intense magenta rim.  On the nose, the wine is fresh and playful with a mix of plums, sour cherries, lavender, dried herbs and subtle charcuterie.  Flowing onto the palate, the wine has a juicy red fruited early palate, full of plums and cherries with a vibrant acidity throughout the palate balancing the fleshy fine tannins giving a long finish.

“95 points + Exceptional”

“No additions, fermented wild, 24 days on skins, racked straight to used French oak for 10 months. Such a gorgeous wine. Fragrant, full of succulent red/black berried fruit, tightened by fine-grained tannin and yet the flavours continue to roam freely through the finish. It’s medium-weight at most and it has a gentle tanginess, but it feels confident and complete every step of the way.”
