From the beautiful, stark rocky slopes of Uruñuela in Rioja, northern Spain, comes this 'joven' style Tempranillo (joven means 'youthful') - a bright and vibrant red that combines the joyfulness of young Tempranillo, with that classic Rioja flavour. A delightful, tapas-friendly Temp, produced by the up-and-coming winemaker Maria Martinez Marin (Lagrimas de Maria translates as 'tears of Maria'), this is easily the best value Rioja in Australia, it's a perfect summer red for Aussie Shiraz lovers who need something a little lighter at this time of year. This is too good a bargain to be missed!
Variety: 100% Tempranillo.
Tasting Notes: Intense purple colour with violet, clean and brilliant hues. In the nose the aromas typical of the variety are imposed, emphasising the presence of red fruit and licorice. In the mouth it is silky, fresh and with body. Very fine tannins contribute to the structure of this young Tempranillo with a very fruity finish.
Food Pairing: Tapas and pinchos.
Recommended consumption: Serve at 15 °C - 16 °C.
Sam Kim (2015 Vintage) says
A gorgeous modern rendition, the fabulously fragrant bouquet shows dark plum, blueberry compote, vanilla, toasted hazelnut and mixed spice aromas. The palate is succulent and beautifully weighted, and offers plush mouthfeel and excellent intensity, brilliantly supported by silky texture and fine, chalky tannins. Flavoursome and immensely appealing.
