Pressed to tank for 3 days then to 3 and 4 year old French Oak barrels for 12 months. This wine is an excellent example of the outstanding results possible, when an allegiance between growers and winemakers creates their best expression of the varietal and vintage. Cellar potential of 6+ years.
Dedicated to those who are doing it tough.
My friend Jamie Brown grew up in Tintenbar and he was a fighter. A successful amateur boxer in his youth, Jamie found his greatest fight would be against the cancer he faced in his early forties. His focus and tenacity in taking on this indiscriminate disease was an inspiration to family and friends. Jamie’s journey touched all who knew him and although he ultimately succumbed, his display of courage and dignity enriched the people he left behind. Jamie’s family still resides in Tintenbar today.
Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather that something else is more important than fear. Ambrose Redmoon.

94 points – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit A powerfully expressed tempranillo, the bouquet shows impressive rich fruit notes of blackcurrant and dark plum with vanilla, cocoa, hazelnut and mixed spice characters. The palate is concentrated and wonderfully weighted, delivering excellent depth and intensity, superbly framed by velvety tannins. Mouthfilling and delectable. At its best: now to 2027.
