Winery Tasting Notes

Tempranillo parcels from Gomersal on the Western ridge and Williamstown in the Barossa’s southern hills were individually matured for seven months, in seasoned American and French puncheons and Hogsheads, then blended with Garnacha from 50 year old vines in the Lyndoch foothills picked late February, giving the ripe juicy fruit needed to flesh out the structure of Tempranillo’s complex and savoury fruit. The final blend is 64% tempranillo and 23% old vine garnacha and 13% graciano. cherry and cola aromas mingle with hints of chocolate and spicy orals. a dark yet luminous crimson colour hints at the rich semi-savoury dark cherry and cola palate that nishes with a hint of grenache red cherry juiciness.
