Product Description

Mr Mick Tempranillo

Crafted in typical Mr Mick style, this wine has subtle French oak, smooth tannins, distinctive varietal characters of strawberries and red cherries, a hint of spice and a long lingering finish.

Variety: Tempranillo

Vineyards: “Ladera”, Clare Valley

Analysis
Alcohol 14.5%

Winemaking: Dry-grown Tempranillo, fermented for a week with its skins, was then gently pressed, with part of the pressings incorporated in this blend for added texture. The wine was then matured in French oak barrels for over two years before bottling in February 2013.

Cellar: It is suitable for drinking anytime from the present to ten years of age, and will complement many cuisines.

Reviews
"I enjoyed this drop with a group of friends and the Spanish influence left everyone with a smile on their face. The smooth tannins make for a distinctive entry point and lingering finish. The wine offers a hint of strawberries, red cherries and is rounded off by subtle French oak. Great with a meal, great with friends. Not to be missed."
Josh Conn Geelong Advertiser July 2013

"Mr Mick is a labour of love for winemaker Tim Adams who named the brand after his one-time mentor, the late Mick Knappstein. The brand has taken off big time, with varieties like this lip-smacking Spanish-style tempranillo with background spice and lashings of cherry and strawberry fruit. Try it with tapas. " Kerry Skinner  Illawarra Mercury  Wollongong  July 2013

"Tempranillo looks to have a great future. This well-priced example starts with a nose of red fruits and sarsparilla-like varietal character, dressed in a robe of sweet oak. It's medium-bodied and savoury with a lightly drying bite of astringency at the end.  Ageing? Drink over two years.  Good Ideas - Good sausages; spanish-style tripe. "  Ralph Kyte-Powell  The Age Melbourn  July 2013
