2019 Tempranillo

2019  Tempranillo


A dry year meant the estates rocky, windswept vineyard, sitting atop an escarpment of shattered shale and limestone, provided wine of great concentration with fine yet prominent tannins.

The 2019 vintage initially appears savoury before charming aromas of plump black cherries and caraway fill the nostrils, luring you in with roasted coffee beans and Liquorice Allsorts. This Tempranillo sits wide across the palate with vivid acidity balancing delicately on the soft, dark tar-like fennel characters and long white peppery finish.

This wine has “age” written all over it. If you have the patience and the space, load up and let this baby sit for years to come. You will most certainly reap the benefits over time.

Wondering what to serve with this beast? Try Billy Dohnt’s own braised wild rabbit pithivier with butternut pumpkin, charred leek and grilled mushrooms. Magnifique!
