Tempt Red Blend 2014

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A wholly tempting blend of classic Bordeaux and Spanish varietals all grown on the Liebich property in the southern part of the Barossa Valley. The name “Tempt” derives from the letters of the three varietals.

The Petit Verdot and Tempranillo vines, planted in 2000, are some of the oldest growing in the Barossa Valley region. Our climate in South Australia is not dissimilar to the climate and terrain of several regions in Spain, so Tempranillo is well suited to our site.

Petit Verdot provides attractive berry fruits, Merlot rounds out the smooth body and a splash of Tempranillo adds depth and lengthens the palate.  This unique blend was hand plunged and basket-pressed, then spent 18 months undisturbed in seasoned French oak, before being bottled without filtration to encapsulate the fruit flavours.

This wine can be enjoyed now and for at least 10 years. Perfect with tapas and paella.This wine was bottled in screw cap to immortalise the magnificent flavours beyond the life span of cork.

Taste Notes:  Deep burgundy colour. Intense bouquet of raspberries, mulberries, floral and sweet spice which follow through to the palate. Medium-full bodied with fine tannins, excellent fruit length, and a soft finish.
