John Ellis would take every opportune weekend away from his regular New York Paris route, to pursue a passion for viticulture. He planted the first commercial Cabernet Merlot vines in the Hamptons and found time between trans atlantic flights to work vintages amongst the Grand Cru vineyards of La Bourgogne.

Leabrook Great Little Neeyo Tempranillo CONFIRM VINTAGE

Tempranillo Clare Valley South Australia
An engaging Tempranillo wine in impressive new world styling, a fashionable fusion of savouryness, freshness and fruit. Gentle handling is the priority, there are no pumps, gravity is employed throughout the process to move grapes and musts. Florals and leather bouquet, violet, olives and bay. Opaque red berries and black cherry fruit, mulberry and five spice run through the long, soft palate, all framed by a veneer of vanillan cedar oak, supported by a flattering length of pliant tannins, exquisitely balanced by the judicious savouryness of a food friendly cherry tang.
Components are treated to a traditional vinification before transfer to a selection of seasoned oaks. Parcels of Tempranillo are painstakingly sorted, any damaged or unripe berries are discarded in the vineyard or during a final cut at the winery. Great care is taken during picking and transportation to ensure that the harvest arrives at the winery in exactly the same condition as existed on the vine.
