Reminiscent of the vibrancy, passion and energy of Spain, this wine is a smooth, fruit-driven red wine balancing notes of blackberry and plum with delicate spice.
The Origins Series Tempranillo has been developed in our “Kindergarten Winery” – a mini winery focused on trialling small batches of new varieties and different winemaking 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 2018 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 and Heathcote vineyards as well as a small percentage from the Goulbourne Valley. The fruit was harvested from early March to early April 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 3.4, and an acid level of 6.0 g/L.

“Brown Brothers helped to pioneer the tempranillo grape, and the style has definitely changed from the early releases which looked to sweetness rather than savouriness. It’s a change for the better. Signature red licorice and blackberry fruits lead the way here in a medium-bodied, sun-blessed expression of the grape. The cherry pip dryness and dusty tannins sport a European sensibility, a fitting match for the wine’s dark, earthy undertones.”
