Hans Herzog Montepulciano
Warning - not for the faint hearted! A heady nose, displaying aromas and flavours of red and black berries, with dark chocolate and chilli underpinned by liquorice and savoury overtones. A complex blend of intense ripe fruit enveloped by soft tannins. Voluptuous, smoky and robust this wine will age gracefully over the next 15 years.
After long, wild yeast fermentation to enhance the dark colour and intense flavours, the wine was transferred and subsequently aged for 30 months in partly new French oak barrels, on its fine lees. Bottled without fining or filtration to retain the beautiful aromas and flavours.
