Winemaker's Notes:

The Running with Bulls Tempranillo is sourced from multiple growers in the western ranges of the Barossa, through to the valley floor and into the Penrice region of the Barossa. This provides a great range of aroma and flavour profiles to make this an interesting and varietal Barossa Tempranillo. Showing dark cherry, tar and potpourri with hints of mocha choc oak. The plush palate has succulent tannins that add structure and length to the wine.

About Running With Bulls:

Running With Bulls Tempranillo and Vermentino are leading the rush of Mediterranean varietals that can make exciting wine in South Australia's soil and climate. Know to thrive in a range of conditions around the world, Tempranillo has an affinity with the Barossa region, where an ideal climate helps to showcase the stylish fruit flavours of this emerging variety.

The grapes are grown with an emphasis on vineyard sustainability, and in the warm and dry conditions little intervention is needed. This results in a healthy and diverse population of natural microflora that piggybacks on the grapes into the winery and begins the natural fermentation. The results are the Australian interpretation of the native styles of Spain and Italy, expressing individual regional characters.
