Region: McLaren Vale Grapes: Tempranillo First Glance: Soft, Juicy, Red Fruited
The Wine: The grapes in each individual vineyard are tasted over and over again until reaching perfect plumpness. Each vineyard block is fermented separately in small open top fermenters and painstakingly hand plunged for around 14 days until the sugars are completely dry. Racked into older French oak barriques and puncheons to rest for the next eight months before blending and bottling for your enjoyment.
On the nose, jujubes, star anise and fat juicy red cherries transport you to a seaside produce market on the Costa del Sol. The palate is like wandering through a stone archway into an exquisite orchard, this Tempranillo has an enveloping mouthfeel finishing with the softness of the clouds passing overhead.
