Milcrest Estate Dolcetto 2014

From the fantastic 2014 vintage where a warm settled start ensured a fantastic fruit set and large yields, this wine is a complex structural wine, made from 100% Dolcetto. It is unfined and thereby retaining full bodied fruit flavour.  

"Dolcetto from NZ, not something you see every day but a real treat for those that wanting to indulge. The small, dark-skinned grapes for the 2014 Dolcetto were handpicked and meticulously hand crafted before the wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered for maximum impact. Expect notes of dried raisin and cherry with a balsamic softness and an almost briny like finish which will keep you coming back for more. Buy a case, you will not regret it!" - 18/20, Wine Central tasting panel

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 2 - 5 years.

Milcrest Estate is one of only two producers of this Italian Piedmontese varietal, Dolcetto, in New Zealand and this site is renowned for its fantastic reds as a result of the gentle North facing Moutere clay slope, wonderful aspect and unique micro-climate. 

A great accompaniment to Pizza, Pasta or anything with a saltiness.
