Otro Vino = other wine. Adventurous, creative, exotic, and explorative hand-crafted wines. Vintage 2017

Vintage 2018

Weather conditions leading into v18 were a little unusual. A warmer than average December followed by a cooler than average January, February and March, resulted in a slow and steady ripening period. This allowed for the development of ripe flavours at low sugar levels and high natural acidity. 

Winemaking

A field blend of Tempranillo, Shiraz and Malbec, wild fermented and matured in old French oak for 12 months. No adds, bottled unfined.

Taste

A rich, generous fruit forward combo of maraschino cherry, red currant and satsuma plum. Subtle Sarsaparilla, amaretto and a hint of white pepper leap from the glass. A luscious, juicy enveloping palate exudes raspberries, plums and blackberry pastilles. Grippy, earthy, rustic Temp tannins carry this gem through the palate.
