Brand Info After starting up Pertaringa in McLaren Vale and K1 in the Adelaide Hills, Geoff established Hand Crafted by Geoff Hardy in 2004. Always a passionate and innovative viticulturist, Geoff's Hand Crafted brand offers one of the broadest and most exciting ranges of alternative and emerging varieties in Australia.

Story Tempranillo is often referred to as the 'noble grape' of Spain and is the main variety used in Rioja. Tempranillo is the diminutive of the Spanish temprano (early), which is a reference to its early ripening characteristics.

Nose The nose offers aromas of red berries and plums with subtle hints of herbs and spice.

Palate The palate is medium-bodied and smooth with red fruits and black pepper, followed by good acidity and powdery tannins.

Food Pairings Always great with a variety of foods, try the Hand Crafted Tempranillo with chorizo-stuffed capsicums.
