Tempranillo is the perfect rosé variety, boasting an Iberian ensemble of aromatics including rose petals, cherries and pomegranate.

Its pristine natural acidity and ultra-fine tannin give us the opportunity to craft a palate of sheer complexity, introduced by fresh red fruits, and finished by savoury structure and quenching textures.

GROWING SEASON

A dry and sun-drenched summer in 2020 led to fantastic soil fertility, perfectly moderated by a mild winter and a long cool spring. A hot and dry start to summer led to beautiful vine growth, followed by a cool ripening season with sporadic summer rains. The resultant wines are characterised by intense aromatics, coating natural acidity, and ultra-fine tannin and tension. 

VARIETY

Tempranillo

WINEMAKING

The fruit is hand-harvested, gently destemmed then pressed immediately to extract only the finest tannin and minimal colour. The juice is 100% barrel fermented in seasoned 500L Puncheons. After fermentation the blend is aged on lees in oak with fortnightly battonage for 2 months. This process enhances mouth feel and introduces additional layers of complexity.
