About

With all of his playing and experimenting with alternative varieties, it comes as little surprise to see Brad Wehr launch a quality Tempranillo under his Amato Vino label.

This comes from his home in Margaret River rather than the Riverland in SA, specifically from the northern sub-region of Yallingup. Warmer temperatures there suit this famous Spanish variety which in Brad’s words, “loves a bit of heat”.

It’s a lovely style of Tempranillo - quite lush and creamy but with flashes of spice and herbs. Good structure and very hard to put down.

As Brad says it will suit early drinking but a couple years in the cellar won’t harm it either. Nice one Brad!

What It Tastes Like

“Dark ruby red in colour. Dusty black and red-fruits greets the nose, and caramel/vanilla oak. Typical Tempranillo – dark choc-cherry spice, punchy fruits, firm acidity, and a delightful ‘redskin’ character lifts the nose. On the floral spectrum we see savoury herbal bay/curry leaf and some eastern spice.

The palate is equal parts juicy and savoury with a firm backbone of acidity and tannin. Red-fruits and blackberry flavours, mocha/chocolate, some darker roasted spices, vanilla, all rounded out with and some toasty aged oak characters.” - Brad Wehr
