About This Wine:

The nose reveals enticing aromas of charcuterie, violet, and dark cherry, inviting you into a world of sensory delight. On the palate, velvety tannins create a dusty texture, perfectly complemented by the tangy essence of dark cherry, which imparts a refreshing acidity.

This wine is a culinary companion, eagerly awaiting bold flavours and hearty dishes such as grilled meats and seafood. However, it also shines when enjoyed on its own, whether slightly chilled or at room temperature. Its versatility knows no bounds, promising a delightful experience with every sip, whether paired with a meal or savoured solo.

"Even Keel Joven Tempranillo is our happy accident. Each year we make our rosé from this parcel of Mornington Peninsula Tempranillo but at the time of harvest our press was all tied up with a backlog of white grapes. Our only option was to drop the fruit into a red fermenter (fully destemmed) with the lid on and turn the cooling on with the idea to press it in a day or two and make a rosé with a touch more colour. However in the chaotic nature of vintage, it was forgotten and by the time it was remembered the wine had well and truly kicked off fermenting (carbonically) and was almost sugar-dry: our only option was to make a dry red. Pressed off skins after eight days and transferred to large-format oak and stainless steel tanks, the wine was bottled in the spring. ‘Joven’ is the Spanish word for young, referencing a wine made to be enjoyed in its youth, yet this wine has the structure to age if needed." - Winemaker's Note
