Elefante Vino de la Tierra de Castilla Tempranillo/Shiraz 2013

Tempranillo from Spain
Review Date : 24-May-2015
Deep ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, lighter on rim. The nose is tight and elegant, quite slender in proportion, with a heart of black berried fruit along with raspberries, plums, herbs and spices. Violet and dark red floral fragrances emerge with aeration. Medium-full bodied and elegantly presented, the fruit is tightly bound, showing aromatic dark raspberries and black berry fruit. The flavours are sweet and have depth and intensity, and are enlivened by fresh acidity. The wine follows a fine-grained tannin line, the textures carrying through to a dry fish with lifted florals and raspberry fruit nuances. This is an elegant, tightly bound Tempranillo/Shiraz blend with lively, raspberry flavours and a fine, dry grip. Match with lamb, beef and Mediterranean fare over the next 4-5 years. 70% Tempranillo and 30% Syrah from 20 y.o. vines, 90% from Castilla La Mancha and 10% Termpranillo from San Vincente, Rioja, fermented to 14.0% alc., the Rioja portion aged in oak. 17.5-/20 May 2015 RRP $18.99
