Tempranillo Wines

With an aroma that lies halfway between a saddlery and a pouch of fresh tobacco, with a few ripe figs thrown in to boot, Tempranillo is a man’s man and no mistakin’. It’s a bit of a lone wolf, but when it’s in Rioja it does spend a lot of time with admirers, such as the richer, fruitier Grenache. When these two get together, they really make waves, but the true nature of their romance has only become clear in recent years as, previously, they were overshadowed by that most dominant of characters, oak. When it’s not in Rioja, Tempranillo hangs loose in the Australia, California and Argentina.
