Tempranillo is a variety native to Spain, it is a “newer” addition to the Australian wine scene. Bright, fleshy, and fun. A mid-weight palate brimming with red summer berries, dark cherry and blackcurrant notes. A voluptuous, mouth filling medium boded wine that presents an acacia like chewy tannin.

We source this alternative variety from our good friends at Wirrega vineyards near Bordertown in the Limestone Coast. The 2019 vintage is 100% wild ferment, where we used only the naturally occurring yeast present in the surrounds to complete the fermentation. Matured in French barriques for 12 months.

The fruit is crushed, then cold-macerated for 48 hours, wild-fermented, 12 days on skins, matured in used French barriques. Another take on tempranillo, with some darker notes shadowing the cherries. Some tannins, too. James Halliday, August 2020
