Smelling of dark cherries and earthy forest scents , the Tempranillo follows through smooth ripe plum flavours with a hint of savory spice and light oak. Our Tempranillo blocks were planted in 1999 as joint venture trial with the SA Viticultural Research Board and is the â€œMother Blockâ€ or source block for SA. Today there are over 120 growers around Australia and the variety is quickly becoming popular on fine wine restaurant lists. This classic Northern Spanish variety is also building quite a following with our regulars looking for an easy drinking pizza or pasta red on their Friday nights.
Produced in our cellar utilising traditional winemaking techniques, this Tempranillo has ruby red hues with brilliant clarity. It displays lifted aromas of black pepper, spice, coffee following with dark cherries and blackcurrant flavours.
The savoury style is inspired by the fine wines of Spain and shows finely textured tannin and a long persistent finish. Ideal with tapas, pizza or rabbit casserole. Best served decanted. With careful cellaring this wine will continue to reward you for 5 â€“ 10 years.
