Mr Riggs Yacca Padock Tempranillo 2017-2018

Adelaide Hills

  • Product details
    Planted in 2000, vines are east facing with site temperatures some 2.5 degrees cooler on average than McLaren Vale which, as the crow flies, is just 5km away. Vines are on old podsolic soils over an ironstone/gravel base and planted to a reasonably high density on a single cordon. With an elevation of 350-375 metres above sea level, and an annual rainfall in the vicinity of 825mm, Yacca Paddock qualifies as a premium cool climate Adelaide Hills vineyard. The 2017 vintage saw a cool wet winter and spring followed by hot and high temperatures in late summer. The advantage of growing an early ripening variety like tempranillo in the Adelaide Hills was pronounced in 2017 as it experienced relatively mild ripening conditions in comparison to warmer regions.
  • Tasting notes
    A wonderfully textural, stylish wine, with natural fruit sweetness and elegance, the Mr. Riggs Yacca Paddock Tempranillo is in its 17th vintage and characteristically displays savoury tannins, dried herb undertones, and highlights sweet-tart red cherry flavours.
