Tasting Notes

Ripe dark cherry, very brooding and concentrated aromatics with a hint of oregano and smoky char.  Surprisingly soft and rich for a young Tempranillo.  Mouth filling juicy ripe cherry fruit that lingers long on the palate.

Vintage Overview

Winemaking

We utilize traditional winemaking practices such as small fermentation tanks, natural fermentation (i.e. no yeast additions) and gravity for grape and wine transfer. Whilst this can be quite labour intensive, we believe it ensures the preservation of natural fruit flavours and the Heathcote terrior character. The Tempranillo grapes were hand harvested, destemmed and lightly crushed into small open top fermenters. A natural fermentation then proceeded. The resulting wine was pressed to French oak barriques (approximately 10% new) for a subtle oak influence. Maturation was extended from 18 to 20 months to allow the wine to soften and show greater complexity. In good cellars, we recommend up to 7 to 10 years aging.
