VINEYARD & WINEMAKING

The tempranillo varietal originates in Spain and is the dominant variety used in wines from the Rioja and Ribero del Duero regions. There are only very small plantings in the Great Southern.

This 2021 tempranillo was picked in pristine conditions in early April 2021. The grapes were cold soaked in small fermenters for two days before undergoing an extended and gentle maceration. Forty percent of the wine was matured in single use Bordeaux oak barriques. The balance went to two-year old Bordeaux barriques for seven months.

THE WINE

Deep crimson purple in colour, this medium bodied Great Southern tempranillo displays intense rich dark berries, earthy, spicy, forest floor notes with hints of dark chocolate with gentle oak support. The wine is effortlessly mouth filling with a smooth savouriness balanced with acidity and complex tannins which create a chewy, dusty and lightly drying mouth feel. This is a great ‘food wine’ and will develop more complexity with further time in bottle.
