Once the darling of the ‘must have something new’ set, Tempranillo is now the darling of the ‘must have something good, contemporary, savoury, fleshy, spicy and not too big’ set. Smart people, those.
Because while the vines can be a bit unruly and the grape present some challenges in the winery… after a decade of production in many Australian climes, Tempranillo has proven its versatility - both in how it performs with consistent quality across these diverse regions, and the way it teams with modern Australian food - and ‘occasions’.
Undeniably aromatic, with distinctive notes of raspberry, mulberry and plum, and occasional hints of dried herbs, the variety also offers a juicy, fleshy yet medium-bodied palate which is oh-so drinkable. Our warm yet mild site, red loam ‘Terra Rossa’ soil and relatively early bottling guarantee all of the above. With generosity yet impeccable poise.
