Overview

The palate is surprisingly full flavoured and complex showing a modern, bright, Australian approach to this age old European variety. The benefits of utilising high quality oak to enhance the overall experience is obvious. The wine shows characters of wild berries, some white pepper, balanced acidity and a long and pleasing finish.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

This intriguing wine exudes a bouquet of ‘forest floor”, lifted spice and just a hint of high quality vanillin oak which is well restrained.

Palate

The palate is surprisingly full flavoured and complex again showing a modern, bright, Australian approach to this age old European variety. The benefits of utilising high quality oak to enhance the overall experience is obvious. The wine shows characters of wild berries, some white pepper, balanced acidity and a long and pleasing finish.

Cellaring Potential

This delightful Tempranillo is drinking well in its youth. Enclosed in a high quality state-of-the-art screw cap, further cellaring and reductive bottle development will be intriguing and rewarding given correct cellaring

conditions over a 3-5 year, or even longer time frame.

Food Matching

Firebox Ridge VS Tempranillo will marry with a broad range of cuisine and will complement many styles of lighter and even full flavoured dishes.
