2013 Single Vineyard Estate Tempranillo
Deep purple in colour this wine is lifted and spicy with sufficient power to carry the American oak. The palate does not hold back, deep, spicy potpourri and abundant tannins will see many years reward.
A warm start to the vintage was moderated by later rains that cooled the region considerably and saw a vintage of fine and consistent quality fruit.
Drawn from our best site in the very north of Margaret River, consisting of fine gravels over ironstone and deeper schists.
Conventionally fermented and transferred to about 10% new American Oak and matured for twelve months.
91 points in the James Halliday Wine Companion 2018.
"Dark plum, tobacco and red cherry flavours are in here somewhere, but the wine is currently dominated by a veneer of high quality, toasty, oak." - Halliday Wine Companion
