The wine is a cherry red colour, suggestive of a vibrant Tempranillo wine. On the nose, its rich aromas have a pronounced intensity with an initial scent of ripe red fruit followed by gentle sweet notes of vanilla and spices. On the palate it is perfumed, soft and fresh with a long finish that leaves memories of red fruit, vanilla and cocoa. Winemaker Elena Adell, carefully cultivates the unique character of Tempranillo by combining the characteristics of three different climates – light flavours from Rioja Alta, full-bodied flavours from the tougher conditions of Rioja Alavesa and deeper flavours from the warmer and drier region of Rioja Baja.
Coming from the Rioja region, Tempranillo is the primary red grape in Spain, and has found the Catalunya area a wonderful region for wine production. Catalunya is bordered to the North by France and to the south by Taragana. This wine comes from vineyards on the high slopes of inland Catalunya. The hot Mediterranean climate is tempered by the altitude, and causes the grapes to ripen slower and develop more intense flavours.
This wine is ideal with red meat, hearty casseroles and matured cheeses.
A smooth, rich wine. On the palate are lovely dark berries and vanilla tied together with finely balanced tannins. Can be cellared for 3 years.Alcohol: 13.2% Read More
You are greeted by youthful, fresh, ripe berry fruit aromas with notes of vanilla oak as the intense red coloured wine flows from the bottle. Full bodied dense ripe berry flavours with notes of vanillian oak but yet long and smooth. Best served with a red wine casserole or a juicy steak with red onion jam. Can be enjoyed now but would also reap benefits of further cellaring.Grapes: ShirazRegion: Coonawarra / PadthawayLocation: AustraliaAlcohol Content: 14.5%Awards: Double Gold - Finger Lake International Wine Competition 2015Gold - CWSA 2015Gold - International Wine Contest Bucharest 201589 points - James Halliday 2015 Approachable, easy...

Pinot Gris has elegant fruit characters but the flavours are subtle. This ‘vigorous’ variety needs to be pruned heavily to reduce the yield per... Read More
