Overview

Singing erupts from a sea of white and red. Viva San Fermin!

It’s 8.00am. The first rocket focuses their attention. A second signals the bulls are on their way. The sea is now moving. Slow at first but running, turning, now faster as the sound of hooves descend. It’s a blur until the third rocket sounds. The enceirro is over.

Relief and celebration.

The Running with Bulls Tempranillo is sourced from multiple growers in the western ranges, across the valley floor and into the Penrice region of the Barossa. This provides a great collection of aroma and flavour profiles to make this an interesting and varietal Barossa Tempranillo.

Suitable for vegans & vegetarians.

Winery Profile

Running With Bulls Tempranillo and Vermentino are leading the rush of Mediterranean varietals that make exciting wine in South Australia’s soil and climate.

Known to thrive in a range of conditions around the world; Tempranillo has an affinity with the Barossa region, where an ideal climate helps to showcase the stylish fruit flavours of this emerging variety.

In 1999, after several study visits to Spain, Tempranillo was grafted onto old Barossa rootstock. That experimental fruit whet the appetite and led to further plantings.

Encouraged with the success of Tempranillo in the Barossa, we planted Tempranillo in our Wrattonbully vineyards in 2002. The vineyard site was chosen for its soil types (principally shallow red soils over limestone), undulating aspect and reliable climate.

Vermentino’s willingness to thrive in the conditions of Langhorne Creek, Adelaide Hills and the Barossa Valley and its terrific approachability make it a welcome addition to the group.

The grapes are grown with an emphasis on vineyard sustainability; due to vineyard conditions little intervention is needed. This results in a healthy and diverse population of natural microflora that piggybacks on the grapes into the winery and begins the natural fermentation.

The results are the Australian interpretation of the native styles of the Mediterranean, expressing individual regional characters.
