2016 Tasting Notes
Tempranillo is vital, youthful and vigorous.
Bright, punchy fruit aromatics of damson plum and mulberry sit above darker dried herb and wood smoke notes.
Mid weight palate with lively red berry and tart stone fruit flavours that mesh with nervy, bright fruit acids and light, snappy tannins.
Harvested from a single, elevated vineyard in the southern Barossa foothills.
Hand picked early in the season to capture lively fruit and retain natural fruit acids, selected bunches were fully destemmed prior to fermentation in a small open fermenter. The young wine was allowed to mature on its lees for six months prior to bottling without filtration.
