A complete and powerful example of our leading variety, this Tempranillo has perfume, fruit and complexity, combined with grippy round tannins and a dense structure.
Within days of our first harvest of Tempranillo (in 2003) we knew we were onto something. The ferment smelled so intoxicating, and so different from the other varieties we make. That is precisely how the wine turned out, and while we only make small quantities, it sells very quickly.
Tempranillo has become our flagship variety. It is clearly very well suited to the site. Plantings are being expanded and this wine now includes fruit from three separate blocks in the vineyard. The Wine of Provenance trophy at the 2017 Canberra & Region Wine Show is testament to the consistent quality and character of this wine.
