Weeping Sands Waiheke Island Montepulciano 2010

Montepulciano from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 14-Sep-2011
Montepulciano fruit destemmed and fermented to 15.0% alc, the wine aged 9 months in 25% new French oak. Saturated purple-black ruby-red colour, impenetrable. The bouquet is very dense and concentrated with black and red berry fruits, lifted raspberry and floral notes interwoven with spices and oak. A full-bodied, near massively concentrated wine, the palate exudes black berry fruits with sweet dark raspberry and floral nuances as well as an inky, spicy infusion. The wine has serious extraction, the tannins ripe, rounded and plump, adding to the generosity of the wine. The alcohol is not intrusive at all, and the acidity is integral resulting in a surprising finesse and restraint. All of the componentry is in harmony and balance. A full, ripe and rounded wine with great weight to match venison and game meat over the next 7-10 years. 310 dozen made. 19.0-/20 Sep 2011 RRP $35.20
