Altacena Tempranillo

Plenty of "Ole!" goin' on here!

Altacena Tempranillo

2018, La Mancha Spain
  • Rich, medium to full bodied Tempranillo - lovers of Aussie Shiraz will totally dig this!
  • 4 1/2 Stars (Sam Kim, Wine Orbit) - "Beautifully ripe and fragrant...excellent fruit intensity backed by polished tannins"
  • Produced from 25-35 year old vines in Manchuela in the heart of Spain
  • RRP $18.99


    Tempranillo (temp-rah-knee-oh) is Spain’s favourite grape and it just loves the ancient soils, high altitude vineyards and harsh climate of belting hot days and cold nights of the Manchuela region in central Spain.

    Produced from 25-35 year old vines this is a rich, medium to full bodied red, succulent and loaded with spicy dark berry fruit flavours. This is another example of some seriously wicked value Spanish red that’s on the market – Ole!

    If you’re new to this style of red but love your classic more full bodied Aussie red, give this a whirl. Fire up the BBQ and serve with sizzling slabs of steaks, sausages and your other favourite barbecued red meats.

    The Lowdown: 14% alc / 750ml / Screwcap
