2019 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 2019 growing season started with mild weather and below average rainfall. Some late spring rain provided a bit of relief from the dry conditions. A heatwave in January was luckily too early in the ripening cycle to cause any damage to the fruit. This was followed by a very mild and dry finish to the vintage, allowing good hang time and flavour development to the smaller than average crop.

Nose: The nose offers punchy aromas of raspberry, blueberries and plum interwoven with notes of rose petals and spice.

Palate: Bright, freshly picked berries continue on the medium-bodied and lingering palate, framed by savoury tannins that highlight a fruit-derived spice note. 

Pairing: Ending on a drier note, this wine is an ideal partner to seafood and less spicy Asian dishes.

Cellaring: Drink now or to 2027
