This weeks featured wine

Bremerton Tempranillo Graciano,  Langhorne Creek SA

The wine is a great example of how these two Spanish varieties complement each other.  Berry, dark rose and spice notes frame the palate in a medium weight, juicy wine.  It is well balanced and supported by fine tannins and structural acid. The wine was fermented in open top vessels to gently extract varietal flavour, perfume and natural elegant tannin.  It was matured for 17 months in a combination of 2nd and 3rd fill French and American oak barriques.

Kitchen Delight

If it’s been a while between visits, now might be the time to re-find the love. The Kipling’s Team have a special lunch promo, $50.00 for a 3 course lunch + regular coffee (Available Daily).
