We take the simple approach handling the fruit to ensure freshness, texture & depth. Bottled in December 2019, we have retained the freshness and aromatic intensity of the grape, while allowing some evolution of the tannins for which it is famed. A fragrant medium bodied wine but with a bit more aging potential than the TSS.
Tempranillo has proven its versatility - performing with consistent quality on the Western Ridge. Undeniably aromatic, with distinctive notes of mulberry and plum, and occasional hints of dried herbs. This variety also offers a juicy, fleshy yet medium-bodied palate which is oh-so drinkable. The aim is to showcase the variety’s natural fragrance, generous flavours, and long savoury tannins. Vintage 2019 is a deeply coloured year.
