Grape Varieties: 100 %

Block: Western block, Single Vineyard, Estate Grown.

Wine Making Notes:

We take the simple approach handling the fruit to ensure freshness, texture & depth. We harvest in the cool of night, ferment in open vessels with hand plunging or gentle pumping over to ensure even maceration, press gently, and run to old French oak barrels for natural malo-lactic fermentation – and then a snooze over winter. Bottled in December 2019, we have retained the freshness and aromatic intensity of the grape, while allowing some evolution of the tannins for which it is famed.

Picking Season: 22nd February 2019 from the western block on the stony soils

Alcohol: 14.0%

Sugar Residual: 0.13 g/l

T.A. (Acidity): 5.83 g/l

Tasting Note: A fragrant medium bodied wine but with a bit more aging potential than the TSS. Tempranillo has proven its versatility – performing with consistent quality on the Western Ridge. Undeniably aromatic, with distinctive notes of mulberry and plum, and occasional hints of dried herbs. This variety also offers a juicy, fleshy yet medium-bodied palate which is oh-so drinkable. The aim is to showcase the variety’s natural fragrance, generous flavours, and long savoury tannins. Vintage 2019 is a deeply coloured and standout vintage.

Food Pairing: Great drinking all year round, especially with a platter of Spanish or Italian cured meats, good green olives and caper berries, Manchego cheese and crusty bread. Or rich tomato dishes such as Pizza & pasta.

Awards: Gold medal Royal Adelaide wine show 2020.
