Tempting tempranillo

Oliver’s Taranga Vineyards Tempranillo 2017, McLaren Vale, AUD $32

A fragrant, medium-bodied tempranillo with good varietal integrity. Gorgeous dark fleshy fruits with hints of dried olive and dark chocolate, gentle background earthiness and framing tannins. It is plush, supple and concentrated though still with a lightness and an energy. Serve with some rustic fare to mop up the tannins and accentuate the flavours. (Screwcap)
