|Aroma & Palate
|Sour cherry, silky tannin
|Tart & tasty Tempranillo
A tart and juicy Tempranillo from Secret Bottle favourites Mr Riggs. This one pours a gorgeous bright maroon colour and shows structured, silky tannin and varietal notes of sour cherry and wild fruits. Some bright almost bubblegum notes, possibly courtesy of semi-carbonic maceration.
Sourced exclusively from the Yacca Paddock vineyard in Kuitpo, Adelaide Hills, a forested region popular with campers, hikers and sightseers.
From The Winemaker
The fruit for this Tempranillo comes from Kuitpo in the south west escarpment of the Mount Lofty Ranges. The Yacca Paddock Tempranillo is a wonderfully textural, stylish wine with natural fruit sweetness and elegance. Characteristically it displays savoury tannins, dried herb undertones and highlights sweet tart red cherry flavours. It is a perfect food wine.
About the Winery
Since 2001, winemaker Ben Riggs, a dead ringer for actor Michael McKean, has produced premium but unpretentious wines from a base in McLaren vale, making use of fruit from both that region and around South Australia.
The wines, driven by Riggs’ own time-honed tastes and whims, are as personality-driven as the label’s name suggests, and display lashings of regional terroir.
