K1 Tempranillo Adelaide Hills, 2019

Adelaide Hills

Grape Variety

Tempranillo

Vibrant in colour with an intensely fruity nose, K1 Tempranillo has aromas of plums, blueberries and violets. It is supple with a good firm structure which will mellow with time. A concentrated wine with lots of flavours which should develop nicely. The 2019 growing season started with mild weather and below average rainfall. Late spring rain gave some relief, but wet windy weather during fruit set led to a small crop. A number of hot days in January kept Geoff and the team very busy in the vineyard — time well spent, given the quality of the result. One hectare of Tempranillo was planted at K1 in 2010. Grapes were protected from oxidation and fermented in tanks with minimal pump over and short contact time of seven days. 5% was matured in new French oak with the balance in tank.
