Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"The fruit for this wine was sourced from a vineyard in the Mount Lofty region at 500m elevation. This is a cool site with red loam over lime soils. Medium rainfall, warm to hot summers and cool nights make this an ideal site for Montepulciano.
 
A warm August / September set the vintage for near perfect conditions. A January heat wave nearly undid all the great lead up work until a cool period and a timely rain event slowed the vines down and allowed the fruit to ripen to maturity earlier than previously vintages but with outstanding flavours.

A vibrant red colour with aromas of dark cherry, boysenberry, violets, biscuit and vanilla. The palate is full bodied, luscious and smooth. The tannins are soft but obviously present which gives the fruit a perfect platform to express."


91/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, November 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"It’s from the Mount Lofty Ranges. It carries the sub-title Piccoli Lotti. Medium-weight red with its fruit freshness kept well intact and enough flavour to satisfy. They’ve done well here. We’re into red berries and chicory-spice notes, perhaps a subtle twist of herbs. But it’s the wine’s vibrancy, and its lack of heaviness, that puts the vote well in its favour – and has you reaching for a second glass."
