Tasting Notes

La Bise 2017 Tempranillo

Tempranillo is Spain’s noble red grape, renowned for producing graceful, ageworthy wines. Although a relative new comer, this variety is quickly gaining prominence in Australia amongst wine producers and consumers alike.

Brand Philosophy : La Bise is French for the kiss. We search the Adelaide Hills vineyards for quality fruit to produce the wines that are “true” to that vineyard and express the flavours of the grapes. We often find vineyards in need of love and attention and by rejuvenating these vineyards we give them “the kiss of life”.

Wine Philosophy: the wines are about fruit and vineyard expression. We aim for for mouthfeel and drinkability without high alcohol. We pick early in the vineyard to give wines that are lower in alcohol by nature as we believe this gives better drinkability and longevity.

Winemaker : Natasha Mooney

Picking Date: Wednesday 23rd March 2017

Tempranillo from a single vineyard in Kersbrook and grown by Caj Amadio. Bright and fresh Tempranillo made to capture the essence of the variety. Red fruits, cardamom and a whiff of tomato bush that I find indicative to Tempranillo. The fruit is harvested cleanly and driven straight to the tank where is stays on skins for a natural ferment that is hot and short, 4 days on skins only to capture all the richness of the fruit without the intense tannins.

To large format barrels for 3 months and then bottled in September.
