Ross Estate Wines Barossa Tempranillo

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Tempranillo is fast becoming the go to variety for those in search of adventure beyond the traditions of Shiraz and Cabernet. This med-style suits our climate and is the perfect fit for shared food. This lively wine is full of vivid fruit with cherries and berries and some subtle savoury tones. It presents a soft, approachable palate of mineral tannins with a spicy,long finish.

Winemaker's Notes

The Ross Wines Barossa Tempranillo is crafted to create a seamless wine that is fresh and lively, yet approachable. The nose displays lifted red berry fruits, cherries and blueberries with subtle undertones of savoury spice and mint. The tannins are soft and minerally, which support the briary fruit and gamey characters before a savoury finish that make this a perfect food companion wine. The seasoned French oak supports the fruit and adds subtle spice. A great all year choice.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Bright hue; while only light- to medium-bodied, has good structure to the red berry and mulberry fruit flavours, the tannins fine and well balanced. Gold medal Cowra, silver medal Rutherglen '09.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Youthful purple; a delicious wine, aromatic and juicy,but with textured black cherries, hints of lemon zest and fruit cake spices, then a clean, fresh finish. A freakishly old planting of tempranillo, present when the Ross family purchased the property in
