Sourced from a stunning Blackwood Valley vineyard, this is a classic tempranillo all the way. Hints of dark cherry and spice off-set a medium-bodied palate of savoury long tannins and lifted sweet oak. Serve with spicy chorizo sausage, rich paella or char-grilled baby octopus.
From the Blackwood Valley, matured for a short time in used American oak, and incorporating a small amount of malbec. Juicy black cherry and spice flavours are front and centre. A wine that comprehensively over-delivers on its price. Rating: 91 points Cellaring: to 2023. James Halliday’s Wine Companion 2018
The 2015 Tempranillo is made from a stunning vineyard which is also one of the highest in the Blackwood Valley region.
With its warm, dry summer days and cooling evening gully breezes, together with its rich gravelly soils, Blackwood Valley is ideally suited to growing this Spanish variety.
Following fermentation, this wine spent a short time in seasoned American oak which has added some sweet vanillin characters to this medium-bodied style.
Moderate intensity with hints of dark cherry and spice.
Some dark cherry and all-spice flavours are evident on the palate and the blending of a small amount of malbec provides some added softness.
Best served with spicy chorizo sausage, rich paella or char-grilled baby octopus.
This medium-bodied red is best enjoyed in the short to medium term.
