Milcrest Estate Dolcetto 2013 750 Ml

MILCREST ESTATE DOLCETTO - 2013 2014-04-28_11.20.11.jpg The 2013 vintage was a stuning vintage in New Zealand, a warm settled start ensured a fantastic fruit set and large yields. A long warm summer and cool nights ensured great flavour development and little disease pressure. Milcrest Estate is one of only two producers of this Italian Piedmontese varietal, Dolcetto, in New Zealand and the site is our Golden Hills site renowned for its fantastic reds as a result of the gentle North facing Moutere clay slope, wonderful aspect and unique micro-climate. This is the same site that we grow our famous Syrah, Merlot and Montepulciano. This wine is a complex structural wine, made from 100% Dolcetto. It is unfined and thereby retaining full bodied fruit flavour. Aniseed, liquorice and plums are dominant on the nose and palate. This wine is a dryer style than the traditional Italian Piedmontese example, but it has wonderful concentration and will cellar well over the next 5 - 7 years. A great accompaniment to Pizza, Pasta or anything with a saltiness.. ACCOLADES: 3.5 Stars Michael Cooper 3.5 Stars Winestate Magazine 89 Points, 4 Stars, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit October 2014
