    The tempranillo variety originates from Spain and is relatively unknown throughout Australia. This one is a wonderful way to get to know the variety. Magnificent deep red colours and lovely dark berry fruit characteristics. Don't be afraid to grab a bottle of this, it's something different and you'll thoroughly enjoy it

    James Halliday, 1001 Wines Under $20, November 2011

    It's full red-purple colour introduces a good commercial example of tempranillo, a variety that is proving it's viticultural adaptability to a range of terroirs and climates in Australia, retaining it's dark cherry and plum fruit with a lift on the finish. A nice touch of French oak adds to it's appeal. It's future - and elastic 5 years, no problem a bit shorter or longer.
