Chaffey Bros. Wine Co. LA CONQUISTA!* TGG 2019


The vinous rematch of the 1811 Battle at Barrosa Ridge, where Spain fought off attacking French forces. La Conquista! pitches Tempranillo and Garnacha on the attack, ruffling feathers amongst the Barossa Old Guard varieties of French descent. The original Spanish spelling of Barrosa honours the original name given to our Barossa Valley by Colonel Light, who fought in the 1811 battle. Rioja-Inspired Red Blend. Perfect with pizza or an epic tapas wine. 

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 Hogshead barrels, then blended with Garnacha from over 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 final blend is Tempranillo, old vine Garnacha and 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 that finishes with Grenache red cherry juiciness.
