Exciting news! Gold for our first tempranillo. Named "Carmen" after a wonderful lady.
"Cherries and raspberries over a savory earthy note with a hint of liquorice and spice; all harnessed by some deft vanilla oak.
The palate is just lovely with a core of concentrated fruit sweetness and framed by perfectly judged tannins. "
We source our tempranillo fruit from high up at the cool end of the King Valley with a climate that reflects where the best Spanish Tempranillo grows.

This is the earliest vintage we've ever had. All finished by the second weekend of March. It's been very busy in the vineyard and winery but happy that another vintage is done.

"Lifted aroma of lemon curd and quince with subtle oak notes of almond and vanilla. Supple round palate balanced with finely tuned natural acidity. Breathes well in glass to reveal more complexity." $28/bot

"Hand-picked, 88% crushed, 12% whole
bunches, open-fermented, racked to
French oak (38% new), after mlf 50%
racked and sulphured, 50% on lees for
a further 12 months. Deep, dense, yet
bright colour; the bouquet is all Côte-Rôtie,
with black fruits, spice, licorice and roasted
meat nuances, the promise fulfilled by the
medium- to full-bodied palate. 14% alc."
