Small Batch Wines | 2006 Tempranillo
The hot & dry 2006 vintage was off the back of a very wet spring, allowing for great development of flavour on the Taranga vineyard. Tempranillo is a new variety to our vineyard, and it is one that shows great promise. It has very different tannins to Shiraz, and has a great savoury character- making it a brilliant wine to have with food. We look forward to working with this fabulous variety more in the future.

With it's exotic range of dried herb characters and grippy, chewy structure. To my mind, it's a perfect snapshot of what tempranillo should look like.. and that's a rare bird in Australia

Its well structured with distinct fruit, dusty tannins (which sneak up on you) and lively acid. Red berry, milk chocolate, earthy, flinty notes and smoked meat/reductive type characters are found on the palate
