Tasting Notes

Bramble, dark rose petal, dark cherry and boysenberry with wild herbs. Some graphite mineral stuff, too. There is a ferruginous element to the aroma with added tilled-earth complexity and a layer of juniper and anise-like spice. Punchy acid and tannin interplay leads the palate on a mesmerising dance of willowy flow which starts with the brightness of Pinot Noir, collapsing into the dark brooding depths of Tempranillo. The exit is long yet fresh, inviting another glass.

Winemakers Note

The dry Mediterranean climate of the Iberian Peninsula and the joven-style wines produced there are the inspiration for this bright and juicy, fruit-driven red. A unique blend of 55% Pinot Noir from Orange and 45% Tempranillo from Hilltops in NSW creates a lifted and vibrant style that takes you on an unexpected journey. Pinot Noir grown in Orange shows bright yet delicate aromatics with fine acidity, while Tempranillo from Hilltops relished the mild conditions resulting in great intensity.
