2017 Tempranillo - 92 POINTS
|Vintage Description: |
Our Regional Range Tempranillo is an exciting red variety of Spanish origin, now being grown very successfully in Western Australia.
|Winemaking Information:||This year’s Tempranillo is all from our Russell Road vineyard, in the heart of the Frankland River wine growing district. This highly regarded, ever reliable region, always produces excellent reds with great colour, flavour and structure.|
|Fruit Source:||Frankland River|
|Colour:||Deep garnet red with a crimson hue.|
|Aroma:||Spicy plum fruit aromas with intense ‘broody’ fruits. Hint of sweet oak with some smoky tamarillo characters.|
|Palate:||A well flavoured wine with loads of red berry fruits predominating. It has the dusty, savoury notes typical of Tempranillo with its good structure coming from the ‘chewy’and lightly drying tannins. With its good structure and great length of flavour it can be matched with many foods or cellared for the short term for further complexity.|
