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.
Made in our micro-winery, named the Kindergarten, this wine is savoury, medium bodied, with spicy, supple fruit flavours and fine-grained tannins.
Enjoy now or cellar for up to 5 years.
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.

The Graciano spent 12 months in old oak, while the Tempranillo was unwooded to retain as much fruit aromas as possible.
|Wine Analysis||Alc/Vol: 13.5%|
In the glass this wine is a vibrant purple colour.
Aromas of plum, dark berries and spice.
These berries characters follow through to the palate, which is medium bodied, with savoury and subtle earthy flavours, and fine grained tannins.
The Tempranillo (74%) grapes were grown at our Banksdale and Heathcote vineyards while the Graciano (26%) was grown at our Milawa property. The fruit was harvested in late March of 2022.
