McLaren Vale Tempranillo Grenache
Ministry of Clouds McLaren Vale Tempranillo Grenache - South Australia - 75cl
A Spanish-style blend, this red combines bright notes of pomegranate, sarsaparilla, violets and nutmeg typical of dry grown Tempranillo, with the perfume and succulence of old vine Grenache. This medium bodied wine is pretty and deliberately moreish. A lithe and juicy wine, it errs on the blood orange, cherry, red berry spectrum on the palate supported by savoury tannins built around a fine boned structure. Definitely lighter and earthier than the usual big and bold McLaren Vale tempranillo blends.
Enjoy over a shared grazing meal, this food friendly versatile wine works a treat with a good selection of flavours from a platter of cured meats to, chorizo prawns to pizzas, pastas, quail and duck dishes.
Ideal serving temperature is 16°C.
Cool cellaring between 5 years to 8 years will be rewarded.
