Tempranillo

Small Batch Wines  |  2009 Tempranillo

Jesse Lewis, Good Drop November 2010, 93 Points

This has a precise tannic structure which is absent from a lot of Australian Tempranillo. In fact, I’d go so far as to say it blows a lot of them out of the water. It’s dark and earthy with black cherry, bramble, coffee grinds and wild strawberry. The length and tannins are superb. Perhaps, for me, the standout wine of the range.
