Tempranillo 2012 Select Parcels

Medium bodied,with savoury grippy fruit and oak support

$29.00 CELLAR CLUB
$26.10

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Medium red, ruby hues. Strong oak char and black cherry fruit dominate the palate. Extended maturation in seasoned oak has added subtle notes of cedar and vanillan spice.

Wine Making

The fruit was harvested in March 2012 and fermented on skins for ten days. Parcels of the wine then spent eighteen months in French and American oak puncheons with 20% new oak.

Cellaring

Made in more of a “traditional” barrel aged style the 2012 Select Parcels Tempranillo is more savoury and time in barrel has allowed the tannins to soften and complex. Enjoy now or over the next 2 – 3 years. A versatile food wine, try pairing with wood fired pizza, Japanese style tataki beef, or a plate of Spanish inspired tapas.
