The fruit for the Hedonist Tempranillo is estate grown on our biodynamically run vineyard situated in the Willunga foothills, McLaren Vale.
A very dry winter and spring, coupled with record heat and dry conditions throughout summer led to an early and condensed vintage. Yields were only slightly down on previous years despite the challenges associated with low rainfall in the growing season. January was Australia’s warmest on record. McLaren Vale experienced record heat – 46.2 degrees Celsius on the 24 January. The conditions lent themselves to smaller berries with good concentration of flavour.
Dark cherry red with purple hues
Red and blue fruits, pink musk, earthy notes and Christmas spices.
Savoury with loads of texture. Sour cherry and cranberry at the fore. Pink musk and earthy undertones follow. Crunchy, bright acid and firm tannins keep it fresh.
