The Pawn El Desperado Tempranillo 2021 - Adelaide Hills
Closure: Screw Cap
Bottle size: 750ml
For me, wine growing is also a life long opportunity to indulge, close-up, my fascination with the wonderful complexity of Old World grape varieties, planted in the Adelaide Hills and Langhorne Creek in some of the oldest soils in the world. Likewise, my winemaking is about a return from modern, large-scale methods to classic, hands-on viticulture and oenology: traditional production methods, the careful use of indigenous wild yeast fermentations, minimal intervention and fine European oak barriques for aging. I hope you will enjoy.
The fruit comes from Langhorne Creek and the Adelaide Hills so there’s weight and textural richness and a vibrant cool climate lift especially on the nose. This is a wine that screams: drink me. Lush plum and cherry with a savoury finish. It’s medium bodied with a beautifully seamless and quite velvety mouthfeel. I want to drink this. Wine Pilot, September, 2023
The Pawn Wine Company was born in 2002 when Tom Keelan (viticulturist and winemaker), Rebecca Willson (Winemaker) and David Blows (a leading Adelaide Hills vigneron) joined forces. The 3 Amigos feared that special parcels of fruit, in exceptional vineyard sites were being blended away into "large company" wines.....in essence they decided to channel their skills towards small batch winemaking, and to stop being "pawns" of the global game.
