2019 Slow Lane Tempranillo

McLaren Vale, South Australia

Dom Smith is back this year with a smashing Temp. A bit of carbonic maceration, partially destemmed fruit and partial extended maceration in the mix before spending roughly 16 months in older oak, the 10 weeks in bottle to follow. There’s a bit of a laugh on the back label for good measure. Spicy, juicy with heaps of depth and great energy/lift from the carbonic maceration.

2019 Slow Lane Tempranillo
About the maker

Dom Smith is the man with a shed in McLaren Vale who is making delicious, easygoing wines that toes the line between nouveau and classic.

Growing up in Mt Gambier and then moving to Victoria to study teaching, Dom couldn't get the idea of making wine out of his mind. After taking a risk and making his own wine at his new-found home in Adelaide, he decided to join a couple of more experience makers for some vintages. Dom and his mentor Bevan Ferguson at Massey Wines source their grapes locally and he works intuitively with what he has rather than a set formula. With never any adds.
