The site is perfectly situated on the east facing slope of the Mt Camel Range, comprised of the famous red earth of the region. The name Montevecchio translates literally as ‘old mountain’ referring to the ancient Cambrian origins of these soils.
The Chalmers’ years of experience in viticulture, and their passion for Italian varieties is matched by the care and expertise of winemaker Sandro Mosele. Sandro’s minimal intervention style allows the varieties and terroir to shine through in these food friendly wines.
The Bianco and Rosso are both co-fermented field blends made from parcels of fruit hand selected from some of the 12 varieties planted across the 20 hectares under vine. The Moscato is made from 100oscato Giallo, a superior moscato selection imported by Chalmers from northern Italy.
