Mt Bera Vineyards Tempranillo Rose 2016 (Adelaide Hills, South Australia) "...cherry, raspberry, strawberry..."
Mt Bera Vineyards produces high quality single-vineyard estate grown wines. Their focus is on biological and regenerative practices and are a family-run business. They have a large range of reds and whites, with something to please everybody’s taste buds! From the beautiful Adelaide Hills between Cudlee Creek and Gumeracha.
In November 2011 the first small section of Tempranillo was grafted on to Merlot vines in the lowest section of the Retreat Valley Rd vineyard as a test to see how it would perform. The site was chosen as it has very cool nights and Tempranillo loses acid very quickly if the night time temperatures are warm. The test vines all grafted beautifully and the sample grapes looked good. In November 2012 a larger section was grafted – giving a total of just over 1.6 Hectares of Tempranillo.
This Rose’ is fermented to fully dry but has the characteristic fruit sweetness from the Tempranillo. Fabulous summer food wide.
