Reminiscent of the vibrancy, passion and energy of Spain, this wine is a smooth, fruit-driven red wine balancing notes of blackberry and plum with delicate spice. 

The Origins Series Tempranillo has been developed in our “Kindergarten Winery” – a mini winery focused on trialling small batches of new varieties and different winemaking techniques. 

Description

Vineyard Region: Victoria
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 14%
Colour: In the glass, this wine is a vibrant purple colour.
Aroma: Aromas of red berries and spices on the nose.
Palate: The wine is medium-bodied and soft on the palate.
Peak Drinking: Until 2022

Recommended food pairings: In Spain, wine and food are taken seriously and this Spanish varietal will make the perfect match for a wide array of traditional Spanish dishes such as paella and tapas, as well as some classic Australian meals. The 2019 Tempranillo is also a great match with spicy salami pizza topped with capsicum, capers, olives and cheese.

Growing Conditions: The Tempranillo grapes used to make this wine were grown at our own Heathcote and Banksdale vineyards. The fruit was harvested through the middle part of March at baumé levels ranging from 13.0 to 15.0.

Winemaker: Geoff Alexander

Winemaking notes: To enhance the freshness and fruit driven flavours this wine did not see any oak influence. It was bottled with an alcohol of 14%. Vegan-friendly.

Critics’ tasting notes

  1. “55/45% Heathcote/King Valley. An unoaked tempranillo which gives full sway to the Spanish grape’s characteristic generosity of fruit. Easy to see why the maker passed on the oak, when there is so much black cherry, red licorice, dark plum, confection and a world of spice to explore. Keeps things trim on the palate with everything nicely in place. Cherry-pip-dry tannins help.”
