More about this wine from McLaren Vale, Australia
Yeah, yeah... we know Tempranillo hails from Spain, but you know what's cooler than being cool (enter Outkast tunes)... It's grapes from another place turning into wine in a far-off land AKA Australia in this case. These vines were planted in the McLaren Vale wine region in Australia in 2000 and we're super impressed with how well the grapes are taking to their adopted home.

These Tempranillo grapes are all hand-harvested and these little berries produce an elegantly complex wine that begins like a walk in a fine spice market in an exotic, far-off land. The palate is smooth and velvety with bright, ripe black cherries slow dancing with some red licorice all over your mouth.
How to drink it

The chilly temperatures of fall have you determined to throw some logs on the fireplace. You're cozied up under your favorite blanket as you hit play on the first of many classic movies on your watchlist.

Eating...

This red is prepared to take on every spice in the pantry. Hit the market in search of some delicate lamb chops and season them with a mishmash of North African flavors for an international twist on a beautiful cut of meat.
