About

Tom Ward continues to mix things up with his small batch # experimental range.

This is the first year Tom has taken fruit from his newly leased vineyard in Orange. Having only just taken over the property, he picked a small portion of the Tempranillo from the property and made some trial batches to get a feel for the fruit.

The #006, or ‘Tempinot’ as Tom calls it, was born of some experiments with blending. This wine combines the spice and structure of Tempranillo, with the softness and vibrancy of Pinot Noir. An unusual blend, but one that works surprisingly well.

As with all of these # wines from Tom, there was only very little made. If you would like to try this innovative little red, don’t hesitate.

What It Tastes Like

Purple fruit, meat and spices from the Tempranillo, but the whimsical smells of pretty, young Pinot in there too. Youthful and inviting. The palate is fresh and berry driven, with sweet fruit and savoury tannins. Interesting package all up from Tom. Perfect for the curious wine explorer.
