Bodegas Eguera ‘e’ Valencia Tempranillo 2010

Tempranillo from Spain
Review Date : 28-Nov-2011
A blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Monastrell, with a portion of the former variety undergoing carbonic maceration, the wine fermented to 13.5% alc. Very full, dark, deep, ruby-red colour with purple hues, this has a softly full, savoury and spicy bouquet of warm red berry and baked plum fruits with nuances of earth, nuts and jam. Full-bodied, this shows up-front, juicy and plush flavours of savoury berries and earthy plums, sweetened by jam flavours, all framed within a round, but robust structure of unobtrusive tannins. Good acidity provides brightness to the fruit and carries the flavours through to a moderately sustained finish. This is an approachable red with an underlying hearty substance and savouriness to match pastas, barbecued foods and most red meat dishes over the next 3-4 years. 17.0/20 Nov 2011 RRP $14.99
