Description

The pre-order period for VineCo's 2022 Global Passport Series kits has come and gone, but we do have some kits remaining. These kits are only released once a year, so get them while they last!

The Wine
A classic Australian blend with a twist. Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz are married with Montepulciano to create a complex and full-bodied wine. Dark fruits of blackberry and currant follow with notes of plum and preserved cherry. Firm but velvety tannins are met with a rich mouthfeel, with hints of black pepper, sweet red fruits, and baking spice.  This is a playful blend bringing three classic varietals together, creating a wine with alluring texture and bold style.

The Region
The Murray Darling region straddles the Murray River and covers a large area between northwest Victoria and western New South Wales.  A hot and dry climate with extended hours of sunshine, low humidity and cool nights allows for the ideal ripening conditions.  Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz thrive in Australian soil producing some of the most iconic wines in the southern hemisphere. The region is now becoming known for alternative Italian varieties like Montepulciano because winemakers have realized those varietals perform extremely well in the warm climate.
