DiGiorgio Family Wines Tempranillo 2012

A very good Tempranillo which deserves to be smashed with some yummy food.

Juicy sour cherries in abundance with a savoury edge which includes sage and dried herbs. I really liked what this offers and it is most certainly a wine craving food. A splattering of eucalypt came through after time in the glass. Not something you'd expect with Tempranillo, but considering the fruit comes from Coonawarra, a surprise no more.

A little drying on the finish with a good length, I'd happily buy a bottle.

Ribs, tapas, pizza...happy days!
