Why Are They So Fabulous?
Kimbolton Wines from Langhorne Creek has one of the most prized Italian native Montepulciano plantings in South Australia, with other alternative varieties of Carignan, Fiano and Malbec joining the more traditional Cabernet and Shiraz varieties.
Kimbolton are focussed on creating great value wines of distinct regional character that over-deliver on quality.
Kimbolton Wines are today run by fifth generation vignerons, Nicole Clark and brother Brad Case. Originally planted by family in 1911, on the alluvial flood plain, the vineyards came under Case ownership in 1947, with the first Kimbolton wine released in 1998. Each wine is sourced from individual vineyard sites to showcase the sensational Langhorne Creek characteristics in their shiraz and cabernets.
Which Wines Should I Try?
Kimbolton grows some of the most prized montepulciano, so you definitely should start there!
2017 Rose is the first time they have made a Rose from this variety. It is super pale (light salmon) and on trend, with a bright spraky fragrance, fresh white topped strawberries, cut pear, herbal edges – juicy and refreshing.
2016 Bella Monte (Sparkling Red) Bella means beautiful in Italian and that is exactly what this Sparkling Montepulciano is! A vibrant ruby red colour, with complex aromas of plum, black cherry, fruit cake and spice, leading to a generous velvety palate of rich red fruits and spices. Serve chilled and enjoy!
