WCH Tempranillo

Rubbery, dark cherry fruit with chocolate  fresh oak and fennel seed herbaceous qualities. Full palate with raspberry , cola, cherry confection  ramped up by the alcohol. Heads to bitter tangy flavours before drying  tannins take over, with a lingering echo of spiced red fruits.  Fun drinking without complication, and handles mid week garlic roasted root vegetables perfectly.

RRP $20
Alc: 14.5%
