Top 10 wines in the UK press

The Master Montepulciano, Tscharke, 2012

NV_Tscharke_Montepulciano1The Guardian‘s Fiona Beckett is praising the foresight of a new company named 21st Century Vino, which is promoting producers that make wine using Italian grape varieties.

While her top picks haven’t yet been imported, particularly Chalmers wines from Heathcote, Victoria, in the meantime she recommends that people “dip a toe in the water with Tscharke’s (pronounced Sharky) sexy, Barossa-made The Master Montepulciano 2012.”

“And yes, before you point it out, wines in this style would be cheaper if they were made in Italy, but that’s not the point,” she argues. “They wouldn’t taste the same, and it’s never less than fascinating to explore the effect of terroir.”
