Method

As with all our red wines, we use small batch fermentation to extract maximum colour and flavour. Six months making friends with light American and French oak complements the vibrant fruit. Fruit from a single vineyard (fancy way of saying its not a blend of multiple sites – bears mentioning though as it has a direct impact on the final wine). This block of vines worm their way within the red Cambrian soil, prized of the Heathcote region.

Conclusion

The Heathcote wine region is gaining traction for Mediterranean varieties as we are repeatedly seeing the results of our suitability for these vines. As more producers craft regional Tempranillo, we see the potential time and again. Its an exciting time, as we begin to understand that our ‘Shiraz-region’ has so much more to offer – as if it had not given us enough already! The success of  our first vintage told us a great many things – we are on the right track, we just might have tamed a dark horse and it is possible to be in gushy-love with a physical place.

100% single vineyard Tempranillo. 13.5% Alc.
