Rich and robust
Deep purple in colour this wine is lifted and spicy. The palate does not hold back, deep, spicy potpourri and abundant tannins will see many years reward.

WBM Australia’s Wine Business Magazine (Mar/Apr 2019 issue) – Mike Bennie: “How cool to see a growing, albeit small, cohort of Tempranillo producers in Margaret River, here with a wine produced in a medium bodied fashion with neat and tidy savouriness and a light dusting of woody spice. Sarsaparilla and cherry cola chime in too. Lovely, soft, supply drinking experience.”
The West Australian Wine Guide 2020 – Ray Jordan: “Starting to develop some subtle secondary characters with extra time in bottle. The dark cherry and dried herb fruit have been partnered with American oak, which has worked well. Has a plush and already complex palate with a hint of lather and spice. It will handle further time in the cellar, but I reckon it’s great drinking now.”

Selector Magazine (May/Jun 2019 issue): “Rosabrook hold up this wine as one of their estate specialties. It’s unashamedly a bigger style, with plenty of power and grunt throughout. Not the wine for a crisp summer salad. Spicy blackcurrant, perfumed florals and vanillin oak aromas lead to an oak-driven palate rich in jammy dark berry fruit with multi-layered tannins, crisp acidity and rustic secondary characters.”
Winestate Magazine ‘Best of the West Wine Show 2020’: “A wine that is a complexity of toasty/ cedary oak layered with cola-like fruit character.”
