Black Label “TPR” Tempranillo 2016
We are incredibly passionate about Tempranillo at Glandore and from an amazing 2014 Vintage comes an outstanding example of our much loved TPR.
Tempranillo is made in 4 distinct styles in Rioja. Crianza, Joven, Reserva and Gran Reserva. The 2014 TPR sits to the right in this group.
We source the fruit from a beautiful little vineyard in Broke. It sits right at the base of the Brokenback mountain and for millennia the ancient soils from this behemoth have filtered down, providing a rich fertile base on which to plant these vines.
Consequently, with next to no irrigation, we are able to produce a wine of intense flavour and character. The robust quality of the fruit from this vineyard allows us to patiently mature the wine in French oak puncheons for 30 months before blending. The flavours are savoury and rich with a long, full bodied palate that would marry well with a wide range of full bodied dishes.
Looking very smart upon release but would also reward with some medium to long term cellaring……were you to show a little restraint!
