Winemaker Notes:

The Tempranillo was hand picked and fermented as four different lots, each with slightly different treatments. One of the ferments was 100 % whole bunch which enhanced both fruit and savoury characters along with adding another form of tannin to the final wine’s structure. All fermentations were with wild yeasts followed by a long soaking on skins for up to 35 days to gently extract fine tannin. Once pressed, the wine was transferred to French oak barrels (mostly 500L puncheons) for wild malolactic fermentation and ten months maturation in our cellar. The wine was bottled whilst still bright and fresh.

Tasting Notes:

Bright flashes of ruby purple. Aromas of blackcurrant, cola and cold tea. The palate is medium bodied, sweet fruited with blood orange and dark cherries before a charry note. I’m reminded of charry meat with herbs, which would make a great food match. Savoury notes of soy and mushrooms. I’m always amazed at Tempranillo’s spectrum of flavours! The ample mouth coating tea-like tannins frame the fruit nicely and will see the wine age for many years, but then it’s delicious drinking now.
