Di Giorgio Tempranillo 2019

A winemaking shift in direction here for the Tempranillo, previous vintages saw French and American oak for 18 months (Crianza style) while this only see 12 months in older oak (more Joven) for earlier drinkability.

Di Giorgio Family Wines, Tempranillo, Limestone Coast, 2019

Medium-deep ruby with a bright edge to the colour. Vanilla bean, dark chocolate, maraschino cherries, lacquer sideboard and spearmint leaf-esque herbs. Good grip of fine tannin and a slick polish of dark fruits with juicy acidity. Carries some dark herby earthiness to ensure it’s not a one-trick pony. Mushroom pintxos and a plate of chorizo please.

RRP: $25
Alc: 14.5%
Rating: 17.5/20 (90/100)
