2013 BAROSSA VALLEY
The timing of the first full moon in the Barossa Valley each harvest typically lines up with the Tempranillo harvest of the Light Pass Vineyard. This harvest moon wine is our offering to Selene, the Greek Goddess of the moon, the celestial-body beauty that resembles fertility and productivity.

TA: 6.1 g/l
Matured for 30 months in new and seasoned French oak barrels 500 and 900L.

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.
