Light on nose...lovely chewy wine, good sour cherry top flavours underscored with acid and tannin, very enjoyable. Rating 92 - Tony Keys, The Key Review of Wines (22/JUN/2010)
The 2008 Gold Turtle Tempranillo has a medium to deep garnet colour and pronounced notes of rasberries, forest floor, freshly tilled loam and balsamic. Medium acid and a medium level of chewy tannins structure the medium bodied palate. It has a nice long finish.”Rating 87 - David Schildknecht, The Wine Advocate (01/NOV/2010)

This wine will improve for up to five years given good cellaring conditions.
The fruit was hand destemmed, with about 10-20% being left as whole berries. After cold soaking for 3 days, the ferments were hand plunged or pumped over 2-4 times daily and temperatures were allowed to get quite high to aid flavour and colour extraction. The skins were basket-pressed at dryness and matured in older French barrels for 12 months before blending.
