Tasting Notes:

Tempranillo is fast becoming a preferred variety in McLaren Vale, with its more savoury notes and rustic charm. We use old French oak only on this wine,letting the varietal characteristics stand out. The 2016 vintage was a low-cropping one, and this resulted in exceptional intensity of flavour. Again, only a super tiny portion of the Tempranillo was made this year. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!!

From the Wine Writers:

2016 Tempranillo

Deep colour with a herb and fresh-turned earth bouquet. A big, rugged and slightly indistinct wine, which lacks definition but has plenty of flavour, tannin and presence on the palate. It would probably take some age well. 29 NOV 2017

Huon Hooke 88/100
