Yacca Paddock Tempranillo

After discovering Scott Hicks and Kerry Heysen-Hicks' Yacca Paddock vineyard located in the Kuitpo sub-region of the Adelaide Hills, the Tempranillo provided too good an opportunity to pass up. The rest is history.

Planted in 2000, the vines are east facing with site temperatures some 2.5 degrees cooler on average than McLaren Vale which is just 5km away. The Tempranillo was fermented in a 5 tonne open fermenter, resting on skins for 7 days, followed by membrane bag pressing. Fermentation was completed in 33% new French oak with the balance 2 year old French oak. Post malo, the wine was left on its gross lees for a couple of months to add texture and creaminess to the palate. A wonderfully textural, stylish wine, with natural fruit sweetness and elegance.
