Black Label “TPR” Tempranillo 2016
Our 2016 TPR appears quite ‘soft’ in the glass. It looks more like a traditional Rioja out of Spain than an Australian Tempranillo.
The aromas on the nose are a medley of savoury spice. Fresh ground nutmeg and powered cocoa lead the way with toasty oak in support. With time in the glass we see the fruit open up and begin to shine.
The palate is quite lively with rich, intense dark fruits, grippy tannins and soft acidity on the finish. There is a ‘meaty’ intensity about this wine giving it quite a savoury edge. Good in the cellar for around 5-7 years.
With those savoury flavours we suggest a dry aged, grass fed sirloin caramelised over hot coals. Pair with charred broccolini & crusty bread.
