2018 Hand Crafted Tempranillo 2018 - Adelaide Hills

2018 Tempranillo

Adelaide Hills

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. 

Vintage: The 2018 growing season started slowly, but warmer weather eventually helped to speed things up. Fruit set throughout the region was good and the low rainfall and warm weather from January to April resulted in great sugar development, while a cooler than average March offered ideal night temperatures for colour and flavour development.

Nose: The nose offers delightful aromas of plums and red berries with an infusion of spice.

Palate: The palate is medium-bodied and bright with berries, plums and a delicious savoury character, followed by a tight, lingering finish.

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

Cellaring: Drink now or to 2026
