Corang Estate Hilltops Tempranillo 2017
Our Hilltops Tempranillo is packed full of dense, spicy red fruit with a savoury edge. A full flavoured wine with fine, but firm tannins and a long complex finish.
The fruit was sourced from Moppity Vineyard, block M14 and was picked late March at 13.3 be.
After picking, the fruit was crushed and destemmed into open top fermenters, where a warm even fermentation took place. Once pressed the wine was transferred to a mixture of 2-3 year old French oak barriques for 9 months.
Though drinking beautifully now, this fine wine will gain further complexity and interest over the next 3-5 years.
An ideal match for roasted vegetables, cured and barbecued meats, spicy pizza and tomato-based sauces.
