Tempranillo is an innovative varietal for Brown Brothers that is now released nationally due to its great success at Cellar Door. The Brown Brothers 1889 Tempranillo has been developed in our “Kindergarten Winery” – a mini winery focused on trialling small batches of new varieties and different wine making techniques.
Recommended food pairings: In Spain, wine and food are taken seriously and this Spanish varietal will make the perfect match for a wide array of traditional Spanish dishes such as paella and tapas, as well as some classic Australian meals. The 2016 Tempranillo is also a great match with spicy salami pizza topped with capsicum capers olives and cheese.
Growing Conditions: The Tempranillo grapes used to make this wine were grown at our own Banksdale (62%) and Heathcote (38%) vineyards. The fruit was harvested from late February to early March at baumé levels ranging from 13.0 to 14.0.
Winemaker: Geoff Alexander
Winemaking notes: To enhance the freshness and fruit driven flavours this wine did not see any oak influence. It was bottled with an alcohol of 14.5%, a pH of 3.66, and an acid level of 6.0 g/L.
