About the wine

A food match dream
  • The Queensland boys are back! After a sellout last year, they deliver their next vintage of their luscious Tempranillo. Beyond the hand-dipped wax seal, this incredible red is all about pure, fresh red and black fruits.
  • The cool climate characteristics make it juicy and moreish, especially with it's layers of French and American oak and soft, velvety tannins. A little lighter and brighter than some Australian Tempranillos, this is a classic example of the style that is made and drunk all over Spain. All this exotic deliciousness can wing to your Angel door for under $19!
  • This wine is sourced from Glen and Andrew's own organically managed vineyards as well as a neighbouring vineyard just up the road in the cool climate hills of Ballandean. A true Queensland dream made in tiny quantities, don't miss your share - pop it in your basket today!

Best before
Although it's ready to enjoy now, there is plenty of fruit, acidity and tannin in the wine to create the potential for ageing well into the 2020's. Top tip from the boys is buy a few and see if you can resist drinking them long enough to watch this wine develop in the bottle!

Serving advice
As always, just ignore the wax and go straight through it with the corkscrew. Enjoy straight from the cellar or give it 20 minutes in the fridge if it's at room temperature, especially in summer. Decant at least 30 minutes to allow the wine to open up, you'll notice the difference...

Food match
Any red meat will go just fine and it's light enough to enjoy with some darker poultry as well. Did someone say turkey and cranberry sauce on Christmas day?! In Spain, this is tapas wine so it also loves a bit of spicy chorizo or chilli prawns.

Meet the winemaker - Glen Robert & Andrew Scott

  • In 2012 Glen, a former research scientist, met Andrew, a hospitality guru and head restaurant Sommelier, at a wine tasting. They've been crafting (and arguing about) wine together ever since. In 2014, they stumbled upon derelict Mary's vineyard, 10 picturesque hectares of Shiraz and Viognier vines in Queensland's Granite Belt. Together they have nursed the vines back to health using organic practices, elbow-grease and TLC.
  • Their exclusive 'La Petite Mort' label might seem a little macabre, but if you seek the true meaning of the phrase, you'll find that nothing could be further from the truth! It's about enjoyment- letting go of restraints and revelling in something new and maybe a little titillating! The boys take pride in crafting each wine to tell it's own regional story.
  • As small producers from a small region, the Naked model gives the team the opportunity to propel the region's wines onto the national stage. Despite almost a century of winemaking history, Queensland produces less than 1% of Australia's wine. So, with the backing of wonderful Angels, it's high time we shout about these incredibly boutique wines!
