Boy, Cath Oates has really nailed this delightful Tempranillo…excellent poise and structure through to the finish. Love drinking this.

Night-havested, a short, warm ferment in open pots, hand-plunged, pressed before dryness to new French puncheons and used barriques for 9 months maturation. Bright crimson hue; a brilliant success, with delicious fresh red cherries, wild strawberries and fine strands of oak for both flavour and structure. Drink sooner than later

Oates Ends is already establishing a reputation for the quality of the Tempranillos, and this is another, albeit slightly lighter-bodied, but still with deliciously appealing, friendly, easy-drinking palate. Spicy with a fine thread of firmish tannins and a gentle hint of oak supporting the lively raspberry fruit flavours with a hint of savouriness.
