Jacques has worked with Tempranillo for over 25 years in the old world, so he was excited to find a small patch being grown on Kangaroo Island in Amercian River. The excellent fruit comes from a vineyard owned by our friend Michael Lane and we picked just a few tonnes by hand in early April.
Our first vintage of this wine is light crimson in colour and medium bodied with delightful tannins across the palate. In fact, you could easily mistake this for one of its cousins from the northern hemisphere.
Fun to make, we hope its is fun to enjoy with friends over your favourite tapas dishes.
