With rich purple hues in colour, yielding to a palate framed by plums, red fleshed fruit and hints of leather. Well-structured tannins and a generous mid-palate round out this Tempranillo.
Moppity Vineyard, Hilltops, NSW. The vineyard site sits at 600m altitude, just a stones throw from the township of Young. The cool climate region provides warm days and cool nights during the ripening period, which helps retain natural acids in the wine.
Fermented for 12 days in open top fermenters, post fermentation rested on skins for a further 14 days prior to pressing, aged in a mix of 2 & 3 year old French oak for 10 months.
