SKU: WINE:Reds:2017Tempranillo

Our Tempranillo clone originates from Spain where it is the #1 wine grape. We built this wine after the traditional Rioja style. Worldwide, Tempranillo is the fourth most sold wine following Chardonnay, Cabernet and Merlot. It is well-known for its spicy, smoky and leathery flavors that age well. The grape’s popularity is growing quickly in the United States. Tempranillo is one of only a handful of grapes that has red juice. Most all red wine grapes have white juice and the flavor/pigment is derived from the skins. It also has an enzyme that naturally fights oxidation, which allows for long-term barrel aging.

We de-stemmed the clusters, returning just enough of the stems to add natural tannins. The juice was put through 48 hours of cold-soaking to extract color from the skins before inoculation. We punched down 3 times a day in the fermentation bins and allowed for an extended maceration of almost 4 weeks, pressing when the cap fell.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The Tempranillo awakens your nasal senses with notes of berry, leather, caramel, and loads of dried cherry. It displays a nice ruby red body with tawny overtures. The legs are lightly hued, long and seductive. Upon tasting the wine, it is balanced throughout with berry, dried cherry, and caramel on the palate, finishing with well integrated, light tannins that suggest a sweet crème soda from your childhood!
