Rojomoma RED ART Tempranillo
Bernie and Sam have a lovely partnership and their micro-winery produces a few hundred dozen cases only each year of quality varietals from some seriously old vines (some dating back to the 1880’s). Sam is a sixth generation Barossan, and for many years was the chief red winemaker at Orlando, overseeing the production of many world-famous brands including St Hugo and Wyndham Estate. Both Bernie and Sam are very creative souls and nowhere is this more evident than on their labels, which feature Bernie’s own incredible photography. Next time you find yourself in the Barossa make an appointment and go and take a look – her artwork is displayed all around the winery.
This has to be one of our favourite Australian Tempranillos – it’s a savoury, earthy kind of style that gives the wine plenty of complexity. Medium in body, it still packs plenty of ripe cherry and red berry flavours that flesh out the palate and add richness and balance, all complemented by fine tannins. By Barossa standards this is elegant stuff, and makes for a very versatile food wine.
