Tempranillo is known for its structure and high tannins but it also has a fruity characteristic so, good news…Tempranillo wine suits everybody’s liking no matter what are looking for.
As you may know, its homeland is Spain. Depending on the regions and given its versatility it is expected to have a wide range of versions and styles.
From cherry-colored tempranillo with garnet flecks to a rich dark.cherry-garnet color, with violet glints…. We can find 100% tempranillo aged in new and old oak for four months to soft the juice from the grips of chewy tannins to produce a round, velvety, structured red with a mid-palate full of toasted vanilla, red fruit and plums.
Or a tempranillo blend, that includes portions of garnacha (grenache) and mazuelo (carignan) aged in neutral oak for 6 months before bottling. You’ll find red berries, chocolate, vanilla, mocha and toasty aromas on the nose and palate.
From jóvenes, wines in their first or second year ideal to pair with appetizers or casual sipping… to special and classic Crianzas that do well with grilled meats. Tuna, Salmon, Tapas or light meats make a great match for “madurados” aged for only few months and incredibly versatile at the table.
Tempranillo goes well with almost anything, but undoubtedly , goes best with savory flavors, like cured meats (do not miss out how it goes with our Iberian Ham ;)) and Manchego cheese that stand up to the strength of the wine.
Tuck into one of our red cases that includes barrel-aged, medium-bodied, spiced, balsamic, toasty oak, and yet still fruit-forward tempranillos 🙂 and enjoy!
