The vinous rematch of the 1811 Battle at Barrosa Ridge where Spain fought off attacking French forces. La Conquista! pitches Tempranillo and Garnacha on the attack, ruffling feathers amongst the Barossa Old Guard varieties of French descent. The original Spanish spelling of Barrosa honours the original name given to our Barossa Valley by Colonel Light who fought in the 1811 battle.
- SA - Barossa
- South Australia
Fresh, fruit-driven and perfumed. Seductive in a slippery, succulent way. Flavours of red berries and chocolate bullets. Dusty finish. In short, yum. Rating 92 - Drink by 2019, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2015).
Winery Tasting Notes
Tempranillo and Grenache
A dark yet luminous crimson colour.
Cherry and Cola aromas mingle with hints of chocolate and spicy florals.
This wine exhibits rich semi-savoury dark cherry and cola palate that finishes with a hint of Grenache red cherry juiciness.
Drink at your local too-cool-for-school laneway tapas bar or at home with rare lamb or homemade pizza.
