About Chalmers Montevecchio Bianco Field Blend

Chalmers Montevecchio Bianco Field Blend is a co-fermented blend pulling the best qualities of six white Italian varieties from their Heathcote vineyard. The aromatics combine florals and delicate cardamon with ripe orchard pear and balanced, luscious texture on the palate. The wine finishes bright with a light chalky grip on finish.

About Chalmers

Bruce and Jenni Chalmers began growing grapes in the 1980s, with their vineyard in Murray Darling, on the border of Victoria and New South Wales. This diverse and thriving vineyard spawned its nursery business, which is responsible for importing nearly 70 new clones and varieties. These varieties were released to Australia in 2000 and have since been a major factor in the improvements in sustainability and quality seen in the Australian wine industry in the last 20 years.

There has always been a focus on Italian varieties, amplified under the next generation; Bruce and Jenni’s daughters Kim and Tennille have been the custodians of the family business since 2005 and 2011, respectively. Under their care, Chalmers purchased an 80- hectare plot in the northern portion of Heathcote, where they have found the greatest Australian terroirs for the Italian grapes they’ve been importing and championing for decades. Their success has largely depended on their ability to match Italian grapes to Australian climates, focusing on thick-skinned grapes that are drought tolerant, resistant to sunburn, and have plenty of natural acidities.

Kim and Tennille have been instrumental in amplifying the Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show. In 2015 they also spearheaded 21st Century Vino, an initiative to increase awareness and expertise in Italian varieties across Australia. Bruce and Jenni are still ever-involved in the company, “always looking for the next big thing,” as Kim says.
