Notes: … and here it is… our first single-varietal Tempranillo, the Spanish variety that, it’s been claimed, was planted in the Iberian Peninsula by our ancestors the ancient Phoenicians thousands of years ago.
Let me say right away I’m hooked; dare I say it’s my new favourite?
This is lusciously delicious.
How to describe it? Floral, herbal, leafy with strong notes of black cherry.
There’s a wonderfully mysterious quality about it that I find utterly captivating.
Our first Tempranillo certainly won’t be our last… It will definitely feature regularly in our portfolio.
