South Australian winemaker Down The Rabbit Hole has launched its 2013 Tempranillo, following on from the success of its 2013 Shiraz.

The poeple behind the new wine are hopeful it will match the success of the Shiraz, which is already over 180 venues around Australia.

Creative director, Domenic Palumbo, said: “We wanted to focus all of our attention on one wine to begin with, in the hope of creating something incredible. And I am proud to say that we have achieved this

with our 2013 Shiraz. It is everything a Shiraz should be – full, with rich red berry flavours, peppery undertones, and a long smooth finish.”

Palumbo added that the Tempranillo is an equally incredible drop with big flavour.

"A great bottle of wine can transform a seemingly ordinary afternoon or evening into something far more exciting; creating memories that are full of laughter, adventure and mystery," he said.

The Tempranillo is described as "possessing a dark, cherry red colour with plum hues, dark cherries and licorice follow through onto the palate, while smooth cocoa tannins provide a lengthy finish."

Palumbo joined forced with Australian winemaker Walter Clappis and the two began working at Walter’s winery in McLaren Vale in January 2014, creating the Shiraz and subsequently the Tempranillo.

Down The Rabbit Hole's wines are available for national distribution through Ninetynine Bottles.
