Strathbogie Ranges
Vineyard:
Whitegate
Vintage: 2016
Variety: 100% Tempranillo
Production:
263 Cases
Harvested:
25/2/2016
pH:
3.47
T/A:
6.76
Alcohol:
13.5%
Fermentation:
Three day cold soak prior to fermentation to extract aroma compounds and improve colour brightness prior to the presence of alcohol, followed by a short 8 day fermentation kept below 25 degrees to retain the delicate Tempranillo aromas. The must was immediately pressed post fermentation as the 2016 fruit delivered wines high in tannin and with good structure.
Maturation:
15 months in third use or older French, Hungarian and American hogsheads to retain varietal expression.

Review
Cola, cherry cola, sarsaparilla, sounds like soft drink, isnít, but does that earthy-sweetness-herbal thing really well and in balance. Lovely texture, bright and yet just the faintest yielding to Autumnal characters, brine-like minerality. Far out. This drinks a treat. Complex and savoury thing this is.

Review
Sensational. From floral, clove-spiked, amaro-drenched, cherry cola-scented perfume, through to shapely, inwardly concentrated yet just on medium weight flavours. The wine has energy, exceptional length, a feel of finesse, succulence and immense persistence. Itís a tempranillo that values that sense of Ďpinosityí but doesnít forget to come bearing a shawl of finely threaded, firm tannins.
Utterly charming, this is a hit from the get go. This is exciting.

Tempranillo 2020 reserve wine review Australia

Review
As delicate as tempranillo comes. This is a flighty, lacy red of beautiful, red berry, pomegranate, sweet earth, pot pourri and herb scents. The palate has feathery yet firm tannins, bright cranberry-like acidity, a dance of barely there but attractive red fruit flavours. Itís subtle, understated, utterly charming.
Just donít expect a tempranillo clip over the ear.
