Calabria Family Wines Cool Climate Tempranillo 2015
Vineyard & Region The fruit for the Tempranillo was carefully selected from vineyards in the Hilltops region near Young.
Smells of fresh red fruits, sweet spiciness, and cedar oak. More medium bodied red fruits on the palate held together with fine, velvety, tannins.
Hand harvested grapes were delivered to the Calabria winery, based in the Riverina where they were then fermented in traditional open fermenters. Nearing the end of ferment the grapes were pressed in a bag press and put into French Oak Barriques and Hogsheads for a minimum of 12months. The Tempranillo was gently racked, stabilized and bottled with minimal filtration.
Serving suggestion :: Tempura zucchini flowers and Roast Chicken with parsnip mash and asparagus.
