The 2019 Montevideo is a 100% Estate Wine, made entirely from grapes grown at Rocklands Farm.
On the nose the 2019 Montevideo leads with soft fruits, primarily black raspberry and blueberry. While still fresh, the wine exhibits characteristics from its 18 months in barrel, such as the fruits being more dry. In addition to the fruits there are also floral notes of violet and tertiary notes of fresh leather. On the palate many of the aromas are confirmed, with additional notes of violet and spice.

Structurally the wine is built around the Petit Verdot, which is the backbone of the wine. While not overly tannic, this wine is the most structured we made in 2019. The Cabernet Franc and Merlot add the flesh to the bones of the wine, adding a round mouthfeel. Texturally the wine is smooth and supple, representing the overall terroir of Rocklands Farm. The 2019 Montevideo ends with a long finish that leads ones to finding new aromas with each sip.
