Winery & Vintage Info

The Angove Tempranillo is from a vineyard on the outskirts of the small town of Willunga, and was handpicked in mid-March with fantastic fruit ripeness.

2021 has been heralded by many in Australia as a “unicorn” vintage – often spoken about but rarely, if ever, seen. Perfect growing weather, cool maturation and a steady and trouble free harvest. Yields were back to normal and while summer 2019–20 was the second hottest on record, 2020–21 was the coolest in 10 years under the influence of a La Niña climate pattern. South Australia had its coolest summer in 19 years and the wines from this vintage are exceptional.

After a gentle de-stemming the whole berries were cooled to 15˚C without inoculation to extract the delicious fruit characters. Once the indigenous “wild” yeast started the fermentation , we carefully hand-plunged mixed the must to coax colour and flavour from the skins with minimal additions. Once ferment was complete the wine was basket-pressed and racked to new and seasoned French oak barrels. Bottled on site we have been able to control every aspect of this meticulous artisan handmade wine that reflects our philosophy of letting the McLaren Vale soils and environment express themselves through the wine.
