NASHWAUK TEMPRANILLO 2012

Wine Region: Barossa Valley, Australia

Grape: 100% Tempranillo

Tasting Note

It is a Dark Cherry colour wine, which gives exotic spices that smell like a Moroccan spice market – cloves and star anise. The palate is solid and focussed with black cherry, liquorice and sarsaparilla. Lovely savoury earthy undertones. Fine tannins provide a stylish finish.

Tempranillo is a wine that is best enjoyed with food – in particular food with some fat content – like sausage and cured meats / cheeses / Spanish tapas. 

About the Winery

Nashwauk is owned and managed by Kaesler Wines, Barossa Valley. Stephen Dew and Reid Bosward are the winemakers. Kaesler’s first wine made outside its Barossa Valley home maintains its winemakers’ criteria using estate grown fruit of predominantly old vine plantings. The search to find the right vineyard took some time before a 20 ha property on Neill Road in McLaren Vale, Seaview sub region was bought in 2005. The 2006 vintage release is Nashwauk’s market debut. Nashwauk wines are made in small quantities (volumes outlined on wine labels) and the brand will probably peak at about 5000 dozen a year.
