Nestled in the hills edge on the outskirts of Mudgee, Montrose is the region’s pre-eminent winery. Montrose was established in 1974 by Carlo Salteri and Franco Belgiorno-Nettis, Italian engineers with a love of fine wine. During the 1980’s the intensely flavoured and deeply coloured Montrose Shiraz was called “Black” Shiraz by its fans. Over the years it has won numerous awards and accolades and is now widely regarded to be one of the region’s greatest red wines.

Hand-picked, 20% whole bunches, the balance crushed to small fermenters for 7-day cold soak, a further week on skins after fermentation, 12-15 months in new and used French barriques. An ornate wine, still youthful, of course, but is very, very interesting.
