2021 A. Rodda Tempranillo13462
WINEMAKER: Adrian Rodda
REGION: Beechworth, VIC
Sitting on the edge of an escarpment, the vineyard is planted at 580 metres above sea level in deep, shaley, mudstone soils. Vineyard Owner/Operator Mark Walpole (ex-Brown Brothers Viticulturist) employs a fastidious viticultural approach that combines arch-cane pruning with judicious leaf plucking and fruit thinning. This, in conjunction with the inherent suitability of the site to the variety, ensures the desired fruit flavour profile and tannin maturation is achieved in the vineyard.
Intense aromas of spiced plums, dark cherries and white pepper are complexed by hints of violets, mocha and cinnamon spice. On the palate, dark plush fruit characters are seamlessly interwoven with fine, silky tannins providing a finish that is long, velvety and highly tactile.
