About This Wine

Winemaker Peter Leske has put years of experience with Tempranillo into this release, a wide regional selection of vineyards.

Powerfully fragrant as ever: red apples, musk, fresh raspberries and the Turkish Delight which is a trade-mark aroma of Tempranillo from some special (and cool) sites.

A textured yet vibrant mid-palate is backed up by that pleasantly drying tannin and fresh acidity. And of course it remains bone dry.

Adelaide Hills

The Adelaide Hills is one of the largest geographical wine regions in Australia, and amongst the most diverse in terms of climate, soil and topography. Because of this, many different varietals are planted here with the most dominant being Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. It is generally thought of as a cooler region, especially when compared to neighbouring Barossa to the north and Mclaren vale and Langhorne Creek to the south.

NZ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has been popular in Australia for a while now, but Adelaide hills Sauvignon Blanc (the most planted grape in the region) could be considered the Aussie Savvy Blanc. From www.adelaidehillswine.com.au about their Sauvignon Blanc: “Wines that are textured, edgy, vibrant and dry with exceptional fruit definition, length and crispness that marry superbly with summer seafood.”

You can also find some cool climate shiraz from the Adelaide hills, defying the more common big bold style that is usually seen in Australian Shiraz.
