Product Description

Hemera Estate Caudillo Tempranillo

Region Barossa Valley

Vintage Current Vintage (enquires welcome)

Winemaker: Alex Peel

Varietal composition: 100% Tempranillo

The ‘Caudillo’ is an early picked style of wine made from the Spanish Variety Tempranillo, thus providing a lower alcohol. Maturation occurred in seasoned French oak barrelsfor 12 months.

Aroma Red currant and boysenberry are evident on the aroma with supporting spice and clove.

Palate The tannins are savoury and persistent, balancing the berry fruits and juicy raspberry flavours that evolve throughout the palate.

Vintage Conditions:The 2012 vintage saw consistent rainfall throughout spring that provided excellent canopy development and uniform bunch maturation. A relatively cool ripening period saw good natural acidity development and pristine flavours in the fruit duento extend ripening time. The resultant wines are very elegant and tightly structuredin style that will provide excellent cellaring potential.

Winemaking:Once the grapes have been identifed to be of optimum ripeness the parcels are brought into the winery where they are gently crushed into the open top fermenters. Herethey are manually pumped overtwice daily to provide softer tannin extraction. Near the conclusion of the primary fermentation the wine is drained and then the skinstransferred to the Airbagpress. The free-run and pressed wine are combined before being transferred into barrels for maturation. Careful barrel selection takes placebefore the wine is blended.
