Kahurangi Estate 'Regional Selection' Nelson Montepulciano 2019

Kahurangi Estate Regional Series aims to capture the essence of several well know NZ wine-growing regions. Montepulciano is not commonly grown in New Zealand but has found a home in the heart of Upper Moutere with small plantings of this Central Italian classic.

This rare New Zealand wine hints to the distinct nose of raspberries, violets and mild mixed herbs. A standout vintage has resulted in a multi-layered and well-integrated wine with silky tannins and generous fruit-driven intensity. This is a wine to savour!

Reviews & Awards

5 Stars - The Wine Writer 2020

By Angie Atkinson, The Wine Writer

A single vineyard expression. Handpicked from the Upper Moutere site, hand plunged and aged in older French and American oak barrels. A vegetarian and vegan friendly wine.

A striking deep purple colour with pretty aromas of violets, red rose petals, boysenberry, with hints of raspberry and cocoa. The palate is bursting with sweet, ripe fruit, plum, red berries and juicy cranberries, the firm tannin structure brings everything into line and the finish has an interesting mineral note. Drink now with a hearty steak dinner or anything chargrilled.

4.5 Stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit 2020

By Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

The wine shows excellent fruit purity and charm with blueberry, dark plum, floral, clove and almond notes on the nose. It's equally appealing on the palate, delivering juicy fruit intensity combined with silky mouthfeel, finishing lingering and smooth Upfront and very approachable.
