Tempranillo 2017

Tempranillo 2017

Our first Tempranillo block was planted in 2005 and to this day we remain one of only a small handful of Tempranillo growers in BC. This noble red grape, native to Spain, is best known as the early-ripening dominant grape of Rioja. This vintage of our Tempranillo delivers an elegant mouthfeel, bright red fruits and a distinctive and intriguing flavour profile at the savoury end of the spectrum. A perennial favourite.

The 2017 Tempranillo is a dry, medium-bodied red wine. The nose of red cherry, cinnamon and sweet leather moves seamlessly into the notes of fig, plum and earthy characters on the palate. This is a complex wine with a distinctive and intriguing profile that leans toward to the savoury end of the flavour spectrum.

The 2017 vintage of Tempranillo has soft, silky tannin structure with an elegant mouthfeel. This is an approachable wine that drinks well now but would evolve nicely in the bottle over the next eight years.
