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.

Vintage Spring and summer were cooler than normal with above average rainfall and the 2017 vintage happened much later than usual. The combination of those factors and dry weather for most of the harvest resulted in higher yields and excellent quality across regions.

Nose The nose offers aromas of spices with notes of plums and red berries.

Palate The palate is bright and lively with a delicious savoury character and a smooth, lingering finish.

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