West Cape Howe Tempranillo 2017

Perennial value winery from Great Southern’s West Cape Howe.

West Cape Howe, Tempranillo, Perth Hills, Frankland River, 2017

WCH Tempranillo

More generous than previous years. Losing a little bit of varietal nuance to be a tasty smooth red. Don’t get me wrong: there’s tobacco spice, cherry fruit and a hint of leaf. But it’s missing a touch of the grip…the iberian attitude. As stated, this is a lovely drink but missing the subtleties of years gone past.

RRP $22
Alc: 14.5%
Rating: 16.5/20
