Tempranillo from the majestic amphitheater vineyard in Hope Forest, Adelaide Hills. This beautiful East-West facing, sloped vineyard is farmed organically by David Gartelmann. The vines there thrive on a mixture of clay, alluvial rocks & sand and reach perfect phenolic ripeness in this cool climate pocket.
The grapes are hand-picked & carbonically macerated for a week, then foot-stomped & left for a day before getting pressed the following morning. The juice is then fermented in stainless & barriques.
