Mount Majura “Little Dam” Tempranillo

Little Dam (0.521Ha) was originally planted to pinot noir in 2000 and grafted to tempranillo clone D8V12 in 2004. Little Dam is 55 metres away to the south from the original Rock Block, with similar aspect and elevation (669-680m). The soil is also similar, with another reef of rhyolite running through it and again mixed with limestone, but a little shallower and rockier, with less or no A horizon covering the red soil. The rhyolite here is particularly rich in the iron mineral magnetite – some small pebbles will stick to a magnet. Typically, this block is the most structured of the three, with a ‘dry-packed’ tannin character we associate with the best examples of the variety. This block has been dry-grown since 2011 and shows great depth and concentration.
