Tar & Roses Tempranillo 2017 (Heathcote)

Tasting Notes
Tar & Roses Tempranillo 2017 is beautifully dense, dry and full. Delectable blend of blueberries, plums and savoury tannin, with hints of charcoal, coconut, star anise, nutmeg and chocolate around the edges.

It’s long and elegant, taking you on a more-ish journey right to the end.

This wine pairs perfectly with slow cooked braised lamb, or mushroom ragu.

Tar and Roses Tempranillo 2017 was made up from a combination of two vineyards from Heathcote. In contrast to the Nebbiolo and Sangiovese in our range, Tempranillo is an early ripener and has no problem reaching full maturity in the soils at Heathcote.

Tempranillo is prone to developing big bunches and berries when grown in rich soil so the rather gravely, tougher soil specific to Heathcote in particular, provides some restraint. Grown largely in the Rioja and Ribero del Duero regions of Spain, it is well suited to the warm, dry summers of Central Victoria.

The grapes were crushed and de-stemmed into one static fermenter which was 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 to finish malolactic fermentation. It was left to mature in a combination of new French and older barriques. Approximately 7% new French oak component. Winery Notes
