A Taste of Spain
I was the first to plant a Field Blend of the Spanish varieties of Tempranillo and Graciano (and added a bit of Shiraz) back in 2010 because the warmth of our climate and the red soils of our vineyard land remind me of the hills of Rioja in Spain which is the home of these amazing red varieties. The combination of the 3 varieties produce a wine of unique character that displays the best of the fruit from the Tempranillo grape, the acidity from the Graciano grape and the tannins of the Shiraz grape. I was also the first to plant Albarino in the Hunter Valley. Originating from the Galician region of North West Spain which, like the Hunter, is classified as warm maritime. Wines from this region of Spain are low in alcohol and acid focused, typical of our Hunter Valley whites. The wine is characterized by its high natural acidity, minerality and zesty fruit.
