Light and bright in style with soft tannins, this easy to drink red is full of red cherry, strawberry, fresh herbs and is perfect with antipasto or a casual pasta night. It’s known in our vineyard as the Portuguese ‘Tinta Roriz’, however Tempranillo is the popular Spanish name for this wonderfully versatile variety.

Ruby red in colour with sweet aromas of strawberries and red cherry. The bright fruit on the nose follows through on the palate with notes of strawberry, cranberry and raspberry and is complemented by soft tannins. This easy to drink wine is perfect with an afternoon platter and was created to enjoy as a young, fresh red.Tempranillo 2017 (287 KB)
A small parcel of Tempranillo was selected early in the season to capture bright and fresh notes and was handled gently to keep the palate soft and avoid over-extracting phenolics. After a short ferment of several days on skins, the wine was then allowed to mature for 6 months with no oak contact, keeping the palate light and bright.
