Mr Mick Tempranillo 2018

Rioja via Clare. The current release and three years old. French oak maturation.

Mr Mick, Tempranillo, Clare Valley, 2018


Macerated cherry and strawberry red fruit. Shredded tobacco herb/spice, light cedary oak, celery seed with hints of spiritual nods of blueberry, chocolate, roast coffee bean and a touch of spiritous lift. Smooth, slick and full with mid-palate “dry red” characters before lingering anise/spice and vanilla oaky hints. Mushy, just there tannins supporting ready to go now attitude. Balanced and an easy choice for mushroom steaks or a beef casserole.

RRP: $17
Alc: 13.5%
Rating:  16.75/20 (87/100)
