2019 Rebellious Tempranillo
RiverBank Estate was first planted on the fertile banks of the Swan River in 1988 and has grown to encompass nearly thirty acres of mature, low yielding vines, producing exceptional fruit that is lovingly handcrafted into premium, regional, varietal wines, vinified and bottled on-site.
The fruit for this wine was hand-picked, stored cold in a sea container overnight before processing the following day. The fruit was crushed to an open fermenter containing 20% whole bunches. Whole bunches were used in the ferment for complexing aromatics and tanning profile. The fruit received a three day cold soak before being inoculated with Clos yeast and spending 14 days on skins. This wine spent minimal time in oak with the aim of keeping the wine bright and fresh in tank with subtle oak influence.
