Tempranillo - 2018 Alpine Valleys VIC
Tempranillo is a red grape variety widely grown to make full-bodied red wines in its native Spain where it is made into everything from their most expensive Rioja down to their cheap table wines and even Rose. Much like we do with Shiraz in Australia. This Tempranillo is ruby red in colour, while its aromas and flavours include berries, plum, tobacco, vanilla, leather and herb.
It is Remarkably like good Australian Cabernet in weight and food matches. Easily paired with a plate of tapas like prosciutto, olives, Manchego sheep milk cheese and really good bread - all of which are coincidentally on offer at our Lygon street store.
