Gemtree Vineyards


Bloodstone Tempranillo 2007

Technical Details:

Purple with black hue.
Dried herbs, 100% cacao dark chocolate, sweet vanilla, black pepper and blueberries. The background notes of bacon bones and dried leather appear after decanting and 5 hours of breathing.
A multi layered rich concentrated wine. Layers of sweet berries, creaminess and spice. The dark chocolate and berries flow onto palate and pave the way for a seamless mid-back that finish with luscious ripe and elongated tannins.
2-5 years.
Vintage Notes

The 2007 growing season was our driest on record in Mclaren Vale, yet as we expected when we planted this robust grape variety, it not only tolerated the conditions, it flourished!

The 2007 tempranillo show cases our first 100% biodynamically grown and made wine; essentially it is as nature intended it with no additions made in the winery. We are immensely proud of this wine and the philosophy that brought it to life.
