Tar & Roses Tempranillo 2020

Tasting Notes

The 2020 Tar & Roses Tempranillo has a burgundy red hue. A complex nose of raspberries and spice with currants, red liquorice and hints of incense and musk. This wine has both a sweet and savoury palate which combined well with the substantial cocoa powder tannins. Raspberries, pomegranates and spice give fruit drive and complexity which sits comfortably on a bed of powdery tannins. A touch of chocolate on the finish rounds out this opulent wine.

Fruit for the 2020 Tar & Roses Tempranillo was sourced from a combination of vineyards from Heathcote, Central Victoria, McLaren Vale and South Australia. Grapes were crushed and de-stemmed into static fermenters which were pumped over twice a day. During fermentation the temperature and acid levels were monitored constantly. The wine was pressed to tank using an air bag press then racked off gross lees and transferred to barrel. It was left to mature in a combination of new French and older oak.

2020 was a difficult vintage with extreme conditions playing havoc with flowering and fruit set. The catastrophic weather day late November 2019 brought hot windy conditions which affected flowering and fruit set in late spring, resulting in low yields from our Heathcote vineyards. Fortunately we were able to secure some beautiful parcels of Tempranillo, similar in style, from McLaren Vale and other South Australian vineyards, to complement our own Heathcote fruit. The final blend is complex, generous and expressive of the variety.

The grapes ripened much slower than normal and in parts not at all. The style of this years Tempranillo is in contrast to normal years. It is more of a joven style. A lighter lifted fresher style of wine with jubes and Turkish delight on the nose complemented by the ever present cocoa powder tannins.
