Our latest release of this Tempranillo is sourced from our wonderful friends at Wirrega Vineyards in Mundulla. This region is further inland and further north than our own vineyards so it produces fruit with of a different nature to our own, with a bright fruit profile and wonderful chalky tannins. The grapes are crushed and then cold macerated for 48 hours to give the fleshy fruit character prior to an additional 12 days on skin during fermentation. The 2018 vintage is 100% wild ferment, where we used only the naturally occurring yeast present in the surrounds to complete the fermentation. The wine was matured in seasoned French barriques for twelve months to allow the full expression of the Tempranillo fruit characteristics.
