Gemtree Vineyards Luna Roja Tempranillo 2008
Amazing vineyard site. The wine where the kit bag goes out the window. Winemaking from the heart.
The 2008 vintage continues a remarkably strong decade of harvests in Mclaren Vale, joining 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2006. An almost perfect growing season paved the way for a remarkably strong vintage where all the strongest parcels of fruit were picked in ideal conditions. The resultant wines have great concentration and flavor yet continue with the Gemtree trademark of fine acid and tannin lines. The 2008 tempranillo show cases our second 100% biodynamically grown and made wine; essentially it is as nature intended it with no additions made in the winery. We are immensely proud of this wine and the philosophy that brought it to life.
