Tempranillo

Small Batch Wines  |  2008 Tempranillo

Lonely Grape, Aug 2009

This spanish variety is showing some good wines in McLaren Vale.  Taranga Vineyard is doing a good job with this emerging variety.  Some of their grapes are going into other winery wines in the district and the grapes going into this wine are also pretty good too.  The wine has earthy characters with a hint of spice on the nose.  When it enters your mouth it shows lovely black berry fruit and finished with very dry dusty tannins.
