Main & Cherry Tempranillo 2020 (McLaren Vale, South Australia) "...cherry, cinnamon, plums..."
The original Main & Cherry vineyard was planted in 1996, at Main Road in Cherry Gardens, nestled amidst the rolling foothills of Adelaide.
The family grow their own fruit, as well as sourcing grapes from other independent vineyards throughout the Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale: an honest, down to earth community built on handshake agreements and a commitment to quality. This gives Michael and his team a rich palette of sites and soil profiles to play with at the blending table.
Michael and his family make wines that are vibrant, bright, and pure; with plenty of personality and nothing to mask the honest flavour of the fruit.
In April 2020, Michael was announced as a Top 50 winemaker finalist in Australia's Young Gun of Wine.
This Tempranillo was dry grown at a sandy site in Blewitt Springs.
A vibrant, medium to full-bodied style with soft, plush tannins. Characters of ripe cherries, blackcurrant, plums, cinnamon spice and earthy tones.
