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 and 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.

I have never been much of a "red" drinker, but Singlefile is slowly changing this with their delectable collection of reds. I received a couple of bottles of the Tempranillo in my June wine order and I honesty wish I had ordered more. This Tempranillo is like a warm hug on a cold evening... its balanced and embracing, warm and inviting…. and will go well with anything! It is mild enough for those of us who are not into strong reds, but with a taste of red berries that makes you think of pairing it with a cherry ripe and a knitted throw on the couch. I really enjoyed this wine and will be ordering more to see out the winter.

Having tasted many Spanish tempranillo I am not usually a fan of Australian Tempranillo but I was pleasantly surprised! The wine is medium bodied and has well balanced fruit and acidity with admirable length. It is ready to drink now and would pair well with any red meat dishes.

Really nice ruby colour with spicy and dark fruit aromas. Similar flavours come through on the palate making it a very inviting wine. I really like the nice oak flavours coming through at the end making this a very inviting wine to drink whilst it is fresh.

Tempranillo is fastly becoming one of my favourite reds. I used to loved Shiraz or cab blends but lately have tried a few Spanish Tempranillo’s - I have to say that this Singlefile Tempranillo holds up well against the Spaniards - a light oakiness & fruity flavours gives this bottle fabulous flavours & would have to be one if my new favourites. Will be adding a few bottles to my next order for sure. Loved it 👍

I hadn't had a Great Southern Tempranillo, but after trying one I promptly ordered more! This is a lovely medium bodied wine with a beautiful oak taste. It was perfect with homemade pizza but it would be light enough to have with nibbles or a lighter meal. Would recommend

I’m a huge fan of Tempranillo and this is one of the best I’ve had! I loved the dark red colour of this wine and it was warm with earthy undertones. Paired fabulously with red meat! Thanks Singlefile for another great wine.

Primarily dark fruits with hints of chocolate and spice. Great on the front palate and fills out the middle well, but drops off a bit at the end so be looking to drink in the next year or so. Pronounced and chalky tannins, so would be looking to pair this with a tomato based dish (pasta, pizza etc). Pretty good value at this price point.

2018 being an excellent vintage for growing conditions in the south, the end product also reflects this. A great introductory red with nice smooth tannins which will easily win over the strict white wine drinkers. An ideal companion to have with slow cooked meats. Definitely a must get when the new vintage becomes available!

I am not normally a Tempranillo drinker but thought I would try it out. I was not disappointed it provided a smooth finish which was enjoyable. If you are looking for an enjoyable light wine that is great with meat dishes look no further!

The Singlefile Tempranillo is a beautiful straight from the go. It’s rich plum colour also made me think of the colour of Bravo apples. The Tempranillo has a rich earthy aroma. The wine is even and spicy . It is delicious by the glass, and would drink well with osso bucco.

This well rounded, easy drinking red is the ideal way to warm up a cold winter’s night. A balance of dark fruit flavours, earthy undertones and hints of spice, it lingers towards the end with a warm finish. It was the perfect medium bodied match for our lamb meal, with the spices well balanced and flavours not lost.

My current easy drinking favourite that everyone enjoys. Depth and berry follow an upfront spice and creamy body. Not usually into Tempranillo’s but this wine has completely changed my mind. Also this playlist is a killer!! One of my favs from this season, I love the vibes and how it compliments the wine so much! Thankyou Singlefile for the added bonus of these.
