We’re fortunate enough to be sourcing our Tempranillo from two of the oldest plantings in McLaren Vale, 14-17 years of age. The quality of these grapes has given us the faith to continue pursuing this straight varietal. Spanish varietals are ideally suited to McLaren Vale’s climate, and this wine is a perfect example of what’s possible.
The 2017 vintage was a very cool, mild and stress-free occasion for vines, not winemakers! Good winter and spring rains were followed by a very mild, long summer. The results are wines with ample fruit complexity and great natural acidity. Most importantly however is the delicious fruit freshness.
