Meet The Maker
Why Tim loves this wine."This wine is an excellent example of when outstanding results are possible, when an allegiance between growers and winemakers create their best expression of the varietal and vintage. "
About this wineUp front and generous, this fleshy tempranillo is hugely appealing and more-ish. A dry yet fruity palate of cherries and plums, hints of liquorice and textured tannins leaving lingering elegant flavours.
About the vineyard
Allegiance Wines was born from a pledge to produce the highest quality from vine to glass.
"Machine-harvested, crushed, open-fermented, 8 days on skins, matured for 12 months in French oak (10% new). The wine has good colour, and a supple mix of red and black cherry fruit, the gently savoury and supple tannins provide a satisfying finish. "
"Dry herb aromas with some forward-developed fruit notes. The palate is lean and light to medium-bodied, with a little prominent acidity lending a certain edginess. "
