2014 Tempranillo

Our Marananga vineyard's take on Spanish Tempranillo, reveals layered Mediterranean freshness and fruit flavours - quinces and pomegranates and cherries.

A stylish, medium bodied red that works well with succulent charcoal grilled quail or lazy Sunday afternoon tapas.

Tasting Notes

Colour
Very bright, vibrant ruby red.

Nose
Fresh cranberries, slight smoke and vanilla. Lifted and enticing.

Palate
Medium bodied, lovely smooth finish and good flavour length. The major fruit flavour is black cherries. This wine is great drinking with or with- out food, delicious. Certainly a style of Tempranillo that reminds me of some of the younger, fresher contemporary wines from Spain. Great with a variety of courses, chorizo sausage would be an excellent match.

Reviews

There is a quiet element to this wine, which is always pleasing to see. Aromas of cranberries and pomegranate plus ripe, fleshy fruit which is powerful yet restrained. The palate is medium-bodied and fleshy with plush fruit and savoury undertones, and the acidity is perfectly appropriate for the intensity of the fruit. Balanced drying tannins. A truly lovely, harmonious tempranillo.
92 points.

2013 Lepus

Every so often our Marananga vineyard is blessed with a season where the winemaking stars align.

A year for perfect fruit maturation, the Lepus is the pick of the crop from the outstanding 2013 vintage.

2013 Ironscraper

The 2013 Ironscraper is a wine that suits its name. Deep crimson in colour its special personality is its length and grip – helped along with an almost imperceptible touch of Barossa Cabernet.

2013 Marananga Shiraz

A complex and elegant Marananga Shiraz, finessed with a touch of American Oak.

With the concentration and fruit definition to complement robust red meats - even hare if you’re game!

2014 Tempranillo

Layered Mediterranean freshness and fruit flavours - quinces and pomegranates and cherries.

A stylish, medium bodied red, brilliant with succulent charcoal grilled quail or a lazy afternoon Tapas.
