The Village Botanist Tempranillo 2013 (6 x 750mL) Currency Creek SA

Description:

Organically grown in Currency Creek, South Australia this wine shows fruit characters of ripe berry, liquorice, plum and drying tobacco leaf. The palate is full with a firm tannin structure leading into flavours of cherry and hints of cedar wood. Picked during March 2013 the bunches were de-stemmed and crushed to allow fermentation on skins for around seven days, following pressing the wine was aged in a mixture of French and American oak barrels to develop complexity.

The Village Botanist range of wines is a celebration of the pull to make artisan wine. Crafted by Vanessa Altmann former Head Winemaker at Temple Bruer Wines and twice national Young Gun of Wine finalist. The progressive winemaker has made wine for sixteen years throughout the regions of the Adelaide Hills, Barossa and Langhorne Creek.

With a focus on sustainable and organic winemaking, Vanessa began fermenting small batch wines under the label Switch Wine during 2010. The Village Botanist range is an extension of this winemaking philosophy and style.

During vintage you’ll find us with buckets at the ready, thrown towards friends and enjoying long picnic lunches amongst the vines. We seek organically grown parcels of fruit and working closely with growers and friends is all part of how we like to make wine. We live by the ethos that outstanding wines come not only from great vineyards, but from people who love what they do.

These are small batch wines, sometimes made in quantities as limited as 100 cases. Our aim is to offer these wines in a different way direct from the winemaker to the wine drinker, it’s that easy.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The meeting of variety, season and maker. The Village Botanist range of wines are a celebration of the pull to make artisan wine.

Chardonnay, Pinot and Shiraz are amongst those that we love to create. Each year it begins as we wander down rows and think about what might be. With fresh dew settled on berries a few months have passed, then colour on bunches and excitement, before we know it harvest is here.Buckets at the ready, thrown towards friends with long picnic lunches among the vines, then back to the winery for the thrill of the plunge.

We seek organically grown parcels and work with our growers and friends who understand that outstanding wines come not only from great vineyards, but from people who love what they do.
