Winemaking and Drinking

Cellar Reserve Tempranillo is sourced exclusively from McLaren Vale and is a unique Australian expression of this Spanish grape variety. Displaying typical fruit characteristics of berries, liquorice, spice and nectar, extended maturation in seasoned French oak has added great complexity to the palate.

An initial ascent of cold/used tea-leaf and new buck leather.Varietal cues are unlocked from their holding-pattern - tomato paste, anchovy, olive oil, and hints of sarsaparilla, brine.

Medium-bodied. Flavours akin to earthy roasted vegetables –parsnip/turnip/pumpkin, replete with crab apple jelly & quince paste. Not to forget an omnipresent savoury disposition –nurtured via the presence of bayleaf, fennel & Sicilian olive characters.Mouthwatering & appetising acidity and grip –possibly induced via the contribution of a mix of persimmon, rhubarb, cherry/raspberry-pip.
