Signature Wines The Coordinates Tempinot 2019


From the Adelaide Hills, a blend of 60% tempranillo and 40% pinot noir – hence the weird name – from vineyards which are adjacent to each other. The pinot spends 10 months in French oak. 

I can’t think of too many blends between these two varieties. Actually I can’t think of any others, but it seems an experiment with legs. A pinot-like colour but the aroma is neither one thing, nor the other, perhaps that is the point. An earthy note with some animal skin characters. Some very good complexity emerging with a nice flick of acidity. Mid-length, though I do think that a touch more length would be to its benefit. For me, 89 points, but I would add, that as a wine-obsessive, it is still the first in this collection I would wish to try. Something different is always appealing and I would encourage other wine geeks to give this a go. You will not be disappointed.
