Chaffey Bros. Battle For Barossa La Conquista
66% Tempranillo, 30% garnacha, 4% graciano.
Cherry and cola aromas mingle with hints of chocolate and spicy florals. A dark yet luminous crimson colour hints at the rich semi-savoury dark cherry and cola palate. Finishing with a hint of grenache and red cherry juiciness.
Tempranillo parcels from Gomersal on the Western ridge and Williamstown in the Barossa’s southern hills were individually matured for seven months, in seasoned American and French puncheons and Hogsheads.
Blended with Garnacha from 50 year old vines in the Lyndoch foothills. Picked late February, giving the ripe juicy fruit needed to flesh out the structure of Tempranillo’s complex and savoury fruit.
The original Spanish spelling of Barrosa honours the original name given to our Barossa Valley by Colonel Light who fought in the 1811 battle.
