Aged tempranillo

Tim Adams Reserve Tempranillo 2009, Clare Valley, AUD $29

A gentle, medium-bodied wine with richness and reserve that has plush and pure poached cherry flavours on the mid-palate. Age has smoothed its edges, and the elements of acidity and tannin have mellowed. It is an ultra-soft, quiet and respectful wine that is lovely on its own though also a good complement to moderately-flavoured food. It is extraordinary to get an eight-year-old wine at this price. No need to cellar as it is ready to drink. (Screwcap)
