2016 Limited Release Tempranillo
VINEYARD / SOIL
Wrattonbully adjoins the Coonawarra area in the southern part of the Limestone Coast wine zone. The prominent viticultural feature of the area is the series of ancient beach ridges and dunes which run roughly north-south through the area. These ridges are made up of soft crumbly limestone which weathers to produce the red and brown Terra Rossa clay loam soils so highly prized for grape growing. The ridges and dunes have elevations of up to 30m compared with the Coonawarra Terra Rossa 'high' of less than 5m. The extra elevation on the Wrattonbully dunes produce the advantage of cold air drainage which reduces the risk of frost during the growing season.
TA: 7.1 g/L

The 2016 Tempranillo is vibrant red in colour with a powerful nose of dark cherries and sarsparilla, with lifted hints of spice and dried herbs. This beautifully medium bodied wine has vibrant fruit, spice and fine tannin structure providing length and definition.
