The Tarzali Vineyard was planted in the Strathbogie Ranges, around 2 hours north of Melbourne, by John Ellis's cousins, David & Pauline Ross in 2003.
In 2008 they decided to expand their plantings to include some european varieties that had been made famous in the region by local Italian winemakers. One of those grape varieties is Tempranillo.
Tempranillo is traditionally a Spanish grape variety. It is known for being low in both acid and sugar making the wines soft, plush and eminently very drinkable.
This wine is soft, delicate and pretty. It has velvety smooth tannins with a strong backbone which helps to fill out the pallet. .
Cellaring: Short to medium-term cellaring.
Food Matching: This wine would go well with most game dishes or drunk by itself.
