Wine Making Notes:
Careful blending is at core of this wine, but as always, we harvested each component separately. The Tempranillo is the first component harvested, next the Shiraz and one week later is the Sangiovese. We vinify and mature every variety separately, using only aged French oak barrels to ensure harmony of tannin structure without too much oak presence.
Our aim seeks to blend the perfume and spice of Tempranillo, the savoury zest with high acidity of Sangiovese, and the gentle power of Shiraz.

Medium-bodied, lively and lovely. Bright red in colour; bright and perfumed on the nose, and very rewarding on the palate. This year the (perhaps the best we have ever grown) Tempranillo is to the fore, but it’s a wine that would be much less satisfying without the three varieties together. A bit “bigger” than previous years but very well balanced. The Tempranillo was darker in colour than previous years and with delicious Morello cherry fruit, similar to the 2016. The Sangiovese produced a wine of intense perfume without astringency. The awards say it all!
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 try with your favourite pasta dish loaded with sauce.
