“It’s a wild ride of flavour. It’s mid-weight, complex, charming and silken, with game, an array of dried spices, flings of roasted nuts and of course red/black berry flavours. So much to experience. Floral notes add yet more to the show. A beautiful red wine.” Campbell Mattinson

"Firm, fruit-filled, kissed with classy oak and then savoury to close. An excellent example of Australian tempranillo. Cherry, cola, cloves and an array of dried spices. Good depth of fruit; nothing wimpy about this. A bit of grunt to the tannin too. It pushes the ripeness envelop – and carries some warmth as a result – but just stops short of overdoing it." Campbell Mattinson
Item Code: ITM6832
Sour cherry, clove, star anise and charred oak with bright acidity to the finish. Beetroot, black cherry and star anise. Medium bodied with bramble, allspice and red fruits notably cherry, underpinned by a savoury earthiness which expresses the rich, volcanic soils of this vineyard. The oak is well integrated and is maintained by the natural bright acidity of the variety.
Item Code: ITM6017
This Tempranillo takes on a style similar to the wines from Ribera del Duero. Cherry and plum are the hallmarks of this wine, with hints of leather contributing complexity. It is medium-bodied and has been made with minimal handling to express the true terroir of the Tumbarumba region.

The colour runs a deep crimson whilst the nose touches intense berry and swims spicy aromas. Fresh musky, stewed plum aromas with aniseed notes touch the palate with elegant and structured rich dark plum fruit and savory, powdery tannins. A very well-balanced wine. The wine has aged very well.
Item Code: ITM6652
At first, tight and compact in structure but time in the glass reveals a fragrant nose of dark fruit and violets. The palate displays rich flavours of cassis, blueberry with well-integrated spice. Rich, smooth tannins provide structure and balance and leads to a long, lively finish.
