History

A love of nature, growth, people and environment joined with a desire to produce the best possible from the land of which they were now caretakers. Montalto was opened to the public in January 2002.

Montalto provides a genuine heartland and home for its produce, a natural and sustainable expression of horticultural production, and a welcoming, peaceful and refreshing experience for the visitor. The unique combination of wine, olives, gardens, natural wetlands and sculpture evolves from this philosophy of producing with love, for love.

Wine

It is the Montalto philosophy that wine should be an expression of its origin, a representation of the best fruit produced from its site in a particular vintage. Fruit is sourced from 7 vineyards across the Mornington Peninsula, from the warmest site at Tuerong through to Merricks, Red Hill and our coolest vineyard at Main Ridge. The vineyard is planted primarily to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, varieties which shine on the Mornington Peninsula. The balance is made up of Shiraz, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc.

The emphasis is on producing fruit of outstanding quality. Care and attention to detail in the vineyard is paramount – hand-tended, well balanced vines, low cropping levels, no irrigation and the exploration and use of alternatives to chemical sprays all play their part in producing high quality fruit. Meticulous and considered winemaking is focussed on preserving and enhancing the characters from our site. Individual parcels of fruit, low suphurs, wild yeast fermintation and natural malolactic fermentation.

In 2010, Montalto moved into a new wine-making facility, converting a former apple orchard and cool-storage facility into a 250-tonne capacity winery. It was also in 2010 that Montalto appointed Simon Black as winemaker. The new facility and new winemaker mark a new chapter in the Montalto wine journey; an opportunity for the wines to achieve their full potential.

Montalto Pennon Hill Chardonnay| モンタルト ペノン ヒル シャルドネ   モーニングトンペンニンシュラ, ペノン ヒル  ¥4,300 2017, 750ml, 13.2%  きらびやかなクオリティ。ミネラリーな特徴と白い桃のような風味が、パチパチと飛び跳ねているようです。 バランスがよくスタイリッシュ。エレガントさもあり、これがフィニッシュまで長く続いていきます。    Campbell Mattisson 95 points   Scintillating quality, and value. This crackles with flinty, minerally character and pops with white peach-like flavour. It's balanced, it's stylish, it's elegant and it drives long through the finish. You can ask for little more.   James Suckling 95 points   Very impressive wine with a composed, assertive and complex nose pinned to mouth-watering aromas of bright lemons and ripe peach fruits. It's a little chalky, too. The palate has a very composed, tight-knit structure with plenty of flavors in the yellow-peach and lemon spectrum. Great balance, length and detail.

Montalto MONTALTO “MAIN RIDGE BLOCK” PINOT NOIR | モンタルト メイン リッジブロック ピノノワール   モーニングトンペンニンシュラ, レッドヒル  ¥ 7,680, 2017, 750ml, 13.6%,  力んで言わずとも、凝縮感、パワーとエレガンスのある、素晴らしいピノ・ノワール。 鮮やかな赤いさくらんぼの香りが、まっすぐフレッシュに鼻と口に流れてきます。複雑味はやわらかくスパイシーな香りと遊びまわるような香り高いエッジを持って現れ、味わいに自然と流れていきます。完熟したさくらんぼとダークチェリーのフレーバーに完璧に縁取られ、味わいは深くそして長く続きます。 飲み頃は今から2025年頃まで。   James Suckling 96 points , pH 3.52 pH, TA 5.93g/L  Six days, French Oak Barriques (30% new) for natural malolactic fermentation and 11 months maturation.  A stunning pinot for the sense of concentration, power and elegance, not to mention plenty of swagger. Bright red cherry fruits flow with purity and freshness on the nose and palate. Complexity arrives in the form of gently spicy aromas and a playfully fragrant edge on the nose, whilst the palate has effortless flow and drive, framing perfectly ripe red and darker-cherry flavors that run deep and long.   James Halliday 97 points   At 156m above sea level, a cooler site, 84% destemmed, 7 days cold soak, wild-fermented, 6 days post-ferment maceration, 17% whole bunch carbonic maceration before destemmed and fermented on skins, matured in French oak (35% new) for 11 months. Bright, light crimson; this is one extremely complex pinot noir, with all the floral spices and highways and byways of the palate, which is equally devoted, twiggy/foresty on one side, small red fruits on the other. Its magic lies with the way the red fruits flow around the foresty notes without any apparent effort, and guide the wine through to its delicious finish and aftertaste.
