Tasting Notes:  

Deep ruby red colour with intense dark cherry and plum aromatics that are complimented with complex dried herb and spice aromatics. On the palate a fleshy black-fruit core is surrounded by a layered line of textural savoury tannins.

The Tempranillo is grown in the Light Pass sub-region of the Barossa Valley, which is classic red soil over limestone,  and sits high on the eastern edge of the Valley. Likely, the oldest planting of Tempranillo in the region, planted in 1999 and is managed with low-input sustainable viticultural practices.
