About The Wine

Simon Killeen's mission is to bring the diverse range of wines from the North-East of Victoria to the rest of the country. Good sites run by good growers, the wines made with skill - spread the word.

It's wines like this that are getting his message out there.

This Tempranillo from the Alpine Valleys is sensational. Fruit grown by Mark Walpool, hand picked and crafted by Simon's hand, this is a modern, vivacious version of this classic Spanish variety. Oak plays only a minor role, the sublime, juicy fruit are the wine's heart and soul.

It's quite simply a gorgeous thing to drink.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Fresh picked mulberries, plums, exotic spices and a raspberry coolie lift. The spices of fruit and oak roll through the mouth at a cracking pace. Sweet/sour/savoury all work in tandem for a perfectly balanced and incredibly moreish rendition of this wonderful variety. Top notch stuff. - Different Drop Wine Team
