La Petite Mort Tempranillo Reserva 2016 - Granite Belt
Bottle size: 750ml
Tempranillo 'Reserva' - In Spain (the homeland of Tempranillo) the best parcels of red grapes are earmarked for "reserva" wines. To be called a reserva under Spanish law, these wines have to be at least 3 years old before they are released onto the market and must have spent at least one of those years in oak.
In the Spanish tradition, we put aside some of the best barrels of Temp for extended aging in oak (24 months) and then a further 12 months in tank and 6 months in bottle before we decided it was ready to go! This wine demonstrates all of the layered complexity that is synonymous with Tempranillo - berries, over spice, over earth.
The selection of the best parcels gives it power and concentration while the extended aging has allowed ample time for integration of spicy cedar and cola from the mix of French and American oak.
Unusual, confronting and a little left of the middle. La Petite Mort (LPM) is the home of our 'other' wines. These small batch, experimental wines are produced with minimal wine making intervention and put into bottle without filtering or fining to allow the raw essence of our experimentation to shine through. Rustic and characterful, LPM wines promise a unique sensory experience and a story behind every label.
Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)
In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.
The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").
Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.
For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.
Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes.
