Ravens Croft Tempranillo 2018
Tempranillo is a variety that thrives in the Granite Belt soils. Here is a fab example from Mark Ravenscroft. Aromas of blueberries and red fruit flourish.
Made in the Joven style, a third saw old oak for two months. This use of old oak has ensured the fruit throws on its dance shoes and moves to an energetic beat.
Beautifully balanced, silky smooth red fruit and berries consume the mouth. Redcurrants, bright red cherries and delicate cure meats all mesh together seamlessly. A red apple peel crunch moves to super fine tannins capping off a delectable wine.
Drink now to five years.
