Tempranillo Clare Valley South Australia
An engaging Tempranillo wine in impressive new world styling, a fashionable fusion of savouryness, freshness and fruit.
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. Gentle handling is the priority, there are no pumps, gravity is employed throughout the process to move grapes and musts. Components are treated to a traditional vinification before transfer to a selection of seasoned oaks.
Deep scarlet. Florals and leather bouquet, violet, olives and bay. Opaque red berry and black cherry fruit, mulberry and five spice run through the long, soft palate, supported by a veneer of vanillan cedar oak and flattering length of pliant tannins, exquisitely balanced by the judicious savouryness of food friendly acidity.
