Hailing from a single block vineyard in the cooler nooks of the Adelaide hills, this light to medium bodied Tempranillo has ‘approachable’ written all over it. It’s simply hard not to enjoy it. Herbal and juicy on the nose with licks of mysterious earthen cacao and cola pair with lifted bright cherries and liquorice. If you’re looking for a little side step away from the pinot’s and sangio’s that dominate the lighter realm of reds, then this has your name on it. It’ll pair well with baked chicken wings in plum sauce and a scoop of fried rice. Just delish!

Don't kid yourselves, the Adelaide Hills are bigger and much more diverse than they seem. It stretches over 80km from the Barossa Valley in the North to McLaren Vale in the South. The area is so variable that small pockets such as Piccadilly and Longwood can only ripen marginal such as Chardonnay or Pinot Noir, whereas other specific areas are perfect for peppery Shiraz and ballsy Cabernet. A healthy mix of experienced hands and young hipsters ensure the region stays at the cutting edge of the industry. Natural wines, and new European varieties including Nebbiolo and Gruner Veltliner are some of the more recent highlights to keep an eye out for.
