Wine Profile
Vinification
As this is only our fourth crop of Tempranillo, a lot of effort went into maintaining the bright fruit characters. Processing involved a short cold soak, then a 4 day fermentation with hand plunging. Oak maturation was in old French oak puncheons (450L). Just 6 months in oak and then bottled.
Winemaker Comments
It shares the red wine duties (and they’re often blended) with Grenache or Garnacha as it is called. Like all winemaking regions around the world, Spain and Portugal have a vibrant mix of young gung-ho artisan winemakers working alongside very traditional wine producing companies. The traditional style is matured in large Slovenian oak vats for many years before bottling, whereas the younger brigade strive for fruit freshness with the oak playing a supporting role. Some have adopted screw caps to maintain fruit clarity. The Brokenwood style is very much down this bright fruit path. Sufficient winter rainfall in 2018 saw the vines off to a great bud burst. A cool, dry, early growing season saw the vines in good health and then 200mm of rain fell in early December. This resulted in great canopy growth which sheltered the vines during the heat spike in mid-January. Harvest progressed under clear blue skies.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with BBQ meats of any description.
Drink
Drinking well now but will improve with further bottle age.
