Vinifera Organic Tempranillo 2015
- Certified Organic
The 2015 vintage of Vinifera won't seem to sit still. Each sip is an evolution as it breathes and develops over an evening. Initially the wine is quite warm in your mouth, but opens up to flavours more typical of a Tempranillo, savoury meatiness, leather characteristics, and cherry, all with some fine, drying tannins.
Our tasting crew all rated this wine a winner. And not only is it delicious, but the attractive bottle and recently redesigned label certainly bring a bit of class to the table. The perfect wine for a tapas dinner, a spicy Italian meal, or even a smoky roast beef with all the trimmings.
Is this the best Tempranillo in Australia? Ranked Number 1 (out of 30) Australian 2015 Tempranillo's tasted by Huon Hooke.
With the Mudgee wine region having similar climatic conditions to the Rioja region in Northern Spain (a long and generally dry growing season with cool nights and loads of sunshine), Tony and Debbie McKendry from Vinifera Wines went on an inspired journey into the world of Spanish wine. Their vineyards now boast a host of ‘romantic-red wine’ varietals, including Tempranillo, Grenache, Graciano and Montastrell.
