Tempranillo, with its Spanish origins, has found a new home in Margaret River, with grapes of great colour density, distinctive savoury licorice-like characters and outstanding structural complexity.
COLOUR: Deep garnet in colour with an vibrant cherry rim.

PALATE: The palate shows earthy and spicy fruit characters. It has complex cigar-box and smokiness from its time in oak. This Tempranillo has firm tannins and a good acid profile which would suggest some medium-term aging potential
