2020 Lost Penny
Mischief Maker


Someone once told us to plant Montepulciano “Monty” – “it would be fun!” It has been more than fun; it has become one of the most challenging grape varieties we have grown. It tends be very immature and takes a lot of time to turn into an adult. It ripens later then all our other varieties forcing us to sit back and wait and wait to finish our vintage. It is only now with this being the first vintage that we have made our own Monty have we found the true pleasure in the variety and can see how amazing it is.



14.0% vol

Barrel Maturation

Barrel Maturation: matured in seasoned French oak barrel for 12 months.

Vintage Notes

The growing season for the 2020 vintage started dry and continued that way. Much of the rainfall was below average for all the months. The 2019 calendar year was the driest on record for the Nuriootpa weather station. With the extreme weather conditions through November and into December saw below average bunch size and smaller than normal berry size.  The flavours and colours and overall quality is exceptional.

Winemaker Notes

Colour: Dark deep red with a garnet hue
Nose: black cherry, dark plum and spice.
Palate: A fine and elegant structure with mouth filling intense dark fruit characters. Fine tannins to give a little bit more complexity.

Monty despite it challenge for us to ripen has become something amazing which we cannot wait to share with you. The overall sweet black fruit character and spice together with a palate that is elegantly structured makes this wine something special.
