Grandeza ‘Gran Tradicion’ ‘Anos 5’ Espana 2012

Tempranillo from Spain
Review Date : 14-Nov-2018
Garnet-hued ruby colour with some depth, lighter edged with a little bricking. The nose is softly full and gently voluminous with aromas of savoury dark-red berry fruits harmoniously melded with a layering of nuts, earth and secondary oxidative development lending mellowness. This builds in intensity with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the palate is softly full with expansive layered flavours of soft red berry fruit melded with dried herbs and earth lending savoury interest, plus a little oxidative secondary development. The fruit is supported by light, grainy tannins providing plenty of fine-textured grip, and the wine is carried by the structure to a soft, mouthfilling finish. This is a soft, textured, mouthfilling Tempranillo with sweet and savoury dark-red berry fruit with dried herb and earthy flavours. Match with casseroles and slow-cooked red meat dishes over the next 3 years. Tempranillo fruit from central Spain, vines 10-30 y.o., fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 5 years before release. Winemakers: Javier Murua and Sara Ugarte. 17.0+/20 Nov 2018 RRP $19.99
