This is a classic Rioja blend from northern Spain utilising a percentage of Graciano to deepen the colour and add another dimension of flavour to the Tempranillo.
Aromas of plum, dark berries and spice. Medium bodied style and savoury flavours will be best enjoyed with a paella, BBQ or a wonderful with slow cooked lamb shoulder.
89 points Halliday Wine Companion
Recommended food pairings: The medium bodied style and savoury flavours of this wine render it quite versatile to a range of dishes. A paella incorporating spicy chorizo, olives, capers and anchovies would be lovely, or rack of lamb with an olive tapenade and rosemary coating, served with artichokes and eggplant. Also, this wine would be a wonderful with slow cooked lamb shoulder incorporating herbs such as thyme, sage, oregano and rosemary.
Growing Conditions: The Tempranillo (75%) grapes were grown at our Banksdale and Heathcote vineyards while the Graciano (25%) is grown at our Milawa property. The fruit was harvested during February and March 2019.
Winemaker: Geoff Alexander
Winemaking notes: The Graciano spent 12 months in older French and American oak, while the Tempranillo was unwooded to retain as much fruit aromas as possible. It was bottled with an alcohol of 14.0%. Vegan-friendly.

“A Spanish varietal blend highlighting each grape’s personality nicely; the dark cherry, black fruits and dried herbs of the tempranillo grape and the firm acid structure, licorice and musk spice of graciano. This is no sweet-hearted red, despite the plummy aromas, but rather a taut, well-built red with grainy tannins, that could go the distance.”
