About

Tempranillo is one of winemaker Justin McNamee’s fortés.

From his vantage point high atop a hill at Seaview, Justin has scouted a brilliant locale for his Tempranillo vineyard. These vines yield a rustic and expressive version of this Iberian variety that is at once highly complex and highly drinkable.

This is a testament to the changing face of McLaren Vale wine. A class act red wine made from a variety other than Shiraz or Grenache.

A smashing example of Tempranillo, here. Made in small amounts and in hot demand, this won’t be around for long.

What It Tastes Like

This is smooth with tannin, velvety in feel. It leaps from the glass with flavours of cola, sarsaparilla and black cherry. It’s svelt and lithe in style, medium bodied but with some muscle built for drinking now or keeping for the medium term. Makes a compelling case for McLaren Vale Temp. Drinkability is through the roof.
