Vintage

The 2016 growing season in the Geographe wine region was warm and dry allowing for an even ripening of all varieties. The Tempranillo was sourced from several vineyards in an area where conditions are perfect for growing this Spanish variety which produces fruit rich in flavour and inherently possesses tannins that are fleshy and ripe.The fruit came into the winery at 14 Baumé and was de-stemmed before being fermented/ macerated on skins for thirteen days. The wine was then pressed and matured in seasoned French oak puncheons for 9 months.
Bottled December 2016

The West Australian Wine Guide 2018

Sourced from fruit in the Geographe region which seems so well suited to this Spanish variety. A juicy and fleshy middle palate gives way to drier spicy and savoury character to carry through to the finish. That's what makes this variety such a good food wine with so many different styles. Long and precise in the mouth. Cellar: 5 years.
