Overview

Tempranillo is undisputedly the regal red grape variety of Spain. The variety is not only responsible for some of Spain’s most robust and prestigious red wines but also for a genre of stunningly textured wines with amazing purity of fruit expression. The uniqueness of the variety can be attributed to its refined varietal charm and its uncanny ability to articulate the characteristics of different vineyard sites. Our soils derived from the ancient rocks of McLaren Vale provide the ideal challenging conditions to grow Tempranillo with varietal personality.
