“A cheery bubbly flavoured with red jubes, blackberry essence and baking spices. It's refreshing with some a tannic grip tempering the rather sweet the finish..” - Jane Faulkner for 2021 Halliday Wine Companion

Winemaking- Premium parcels of Tempranillo were specifically selected from the Highway Block for soft tannins.

The Tempranillo was barrel-aged in old oak prior to spending 12 months on lees.
