Winery/Brand: Temple Bruer


The nose shows blackberry and slightly medicinal aromas reminiscent of cough syrup complimented by aromas of spice and dried thyme. The palate shows intense blackberry and firm fine tannins which progress towards chalky. The wines acidity balances the tannin well revealing flavours of forest berries, dusty oak and a lingering dryness.



The Story

The fruit used to make this wine was sourced from the Temple Bruer’s certified organic vineyard at Langhorne Creek. Harvesting commenced from early to mid March 2008. Co-fermentation progressed at a moderate rate and the wine was pumped over skins for two weeks. All the pressings were included with the free-run wine. Malolactic fermentation was encouraged and at its completion the wine was racked into American oak for maturation.
