Oh Spain you’ve done it again! For the first time ever in New Zealand comes this gorgeous, award winning Spanish Tempranillo (pronounced “temp-rah-knee-oh”), authentically packaged with its fancy gold wire wrap and given the thumbs up from not one, but two Masters of Wine!

Say ‘Hola!’ to Imperio Seleccion No.6 Tempranillo. It’s made by the guys at the Navarro Lopez winery in Valdepenas and imported into NZ by Master of Wine Steve Bennett.

The wine has had 6 months oak aging for added complexity and ticks all the boxes and then some for a quality Spanish red under $20….

4 1/2 stars, 91/100 (Sam Kim)
“Beautifully fruited and complex, the wine shows dark berry, dried herb, smoky bacon and toasted spice aromas on the nose, followed by a finely textured palate offering ripe fruit flavours with savoury nuances, finishing lingering and attractively dry. At its best: now to 2026.”

89/100 (Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review)
“Full-flavoured, gutsy tempranillo with typical plum, berry, tobacco leaf and a suggestion of violet. More vinous than fruity with a pleasing rustic character. Approachable now—drink up!”

As Bob says, drink up!
