2018 TEMPRANILLO Adelaide Hills
Tempranillo grapes are well suited to the Adelaide Hills region. They ripen early, love altitude and thrive in cool-climate conditions. The grapes were fermented in open tanks for ten days, then pressed and transferred to French oak barrels for 1 year. The finished wine delivers contrasting flavours. Deep crimson in colour this wine is best described as a “big bold” Spanish style red.
2019 KPMG SYDNEY ROYAL
95 points - Top of the class!
Judges Comments: "Very solid Class. The 2018 wines shone with their brightness and vitality. Top wine had depth of fruit with judicious use of oak."
Judges Comments: "Some earthy and savoury spice.. black pepper and dark cherry.. good mouth coating and fresh, medium weight." "Subdued nose, cherry fruits, grippy tannin" "Nice simple red fruits, good structure, simple but nice drink.".
This unique & unusual paring of wines delivers up a complex layer of flavours. The predominant Tempranillo stands tall and bold the Pinot Noir elegant and graceful. Together they harmonise and sing, presenting as dark cherry in colour, soft tannins with a hint of French oak on the nose. Fermented and made separately each wine was treated as “individuals” and came together as a blend the day before bottling.
