Tempranillo ‘Los Hermanos’, Crittenden 2021
Characters of plums, cherries and spice fill the nose. A firm dry palate of blackberries and dark chocolate.
The fruit for our classic Spanish styles is sourced from premium Victorian cool climate regions.
The grapes were hand harvested and destemmed to open fermenters where the fermentation
process was allowed to commence spontaneously with indigenous yeast. The wine was aged in older oak barriques and hogshead barrels for 5 months of maturation.
Why we love this:
Spanish grapes have done well in the hot dry conditions of Australia. This makes an interesting counterpoint to rioja. Perhaps a little more fruit driven but plenty of spices and complexity.
