Hilltops, New South Wales
Excellent growing conditions in 2022 led to healthy vines and good yields. A cooler summer allowed for development of a medium bodied style with spice and elegance in our red wines.
Tempranillo has thick skin that allows acid retention, and it’s low susceptibility to disease and pests makes it a sustainable choice for growers. It’s juicy, rustic fruit profile and food-friendly nature makes it a top drop no matter the occasion.
This tempranillo has a medium body & high acidity that gives a refreshing & lively character. The palate is packed with cherry & raspberry, as well as notes of herbs, earth, & spices. Subtle vanilla & toast undertones complement the wine’s rustic tannins.
The fine tannin structure and natural acidity gives the wine the potential to age for 5-10 years. The lush fruit and spice will begin to transform to secondary characterisitics of leather, mushroom and dried fruit.
Tempranillo’s bold flavors of dark fruit, spice, and rustic tannins make it a great match for roasted meats, paella, hard cheeses, and tomato-based dishes like pasta or pizza.
