'The palate only just into medium-bodied territory, but all the better for that, the finish exuberantly juicy.'
95 Points - James Halliday

  • Montvalley, established in 1998 by John and Deidre Colvin, situated in a premium natural amphitheatre overlooking Mount View, and adjacent to the Brokenback escarpment, is one of the rising stars of the Hunter Valley. 

    With just a small 5.7ha planted to vines, predominantly Shiraz, the estate has witnessed a fairly rapid rise in quality and demand over the years. This Reserve Shiraz, from the once in a lifetime 2014 vintage, is typical of the region. Perfectly weighted, with leather, earth, red fruits and blackberry jam, the wine has beautifully fragrant overtones and a fresh lithe finish.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Made from 100% hand-picked Shiraz grapes, the juice was cool fermented to preserve the natural fruit flavours and aged in 2-3 year old French and American oak for 13 months.

    Hand-picked fruit is crushed into open two tonne fermenters. These are then plunged three times a day during fermentation. The tubs are tipped into the press when fermentation is complete. The wine is then transferred to French hogshead of which 25% are new for 14 to 16 months. During this period the wine is racked and returned to oak three times. The wine is egg white fined prior to bottling.

    TASTING NOTES

    Deep ruby red. Fruity plum notes on the nose. This lovely soft and vibrant Shiraz with its gentle tannin and fruity plum finish make it the ideal wine to share with friends around a BBQ.

  • REVIEWS

    'From an outstanding vintage, the growing season weather perfect for shiraz. The colour is bright crimson-purple, the bouquet a spray of red and black fruits with touches of spice and earth, the palate only just into medium-bodied territory, but all the better for that, the finish exuberantly juicy.'
