Hare’s Chase Tempranillo 2016

Special Price $30.00 Regular Price $40.00
This is on the big side despite being a relatively low 13.8 percent alcohol. We put that down to the fruit being grown in the Marananga sub-region of the Barossa, renown for its dense, chewy reds. Plenty of red and black fruits here, with cherries and savoury tannins to finish. It’s quite closed when first opened, so give it a vigorous decant. Looks even better on the second day.

The Hare’s Chase Vineyard dates back to 1961 and is in the Marananga sub-region of the Barossa Valley. The Vineyard covers 35 acres which are tended carefully and generally yield a very low 2 tonnes per acre. Plantings are predominantly Shiraz, with a bit of Cab, Tempranillo and Merlot also in the ground. Wines are made with minimal intervention and are bottled without fining or filtration.
