Raimat ‘Pirinenca’ Costers del Segre Tempranillo 2015

Tempranillo from Spain
Review Date : 22-Apr-2018
Dark ruby-red colour with good depth and slight purple hues, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is softly packed with rounded aromas of ripe dark-red and black berried fruits harmoniously entwined with a soft layering of earth, oak cedar and a suggestion of game. Medium-full bodied, the palate is softly rich with moderately sweet and juicy flavours of ripe dark raspberries along with blackberry and plums, melded with flavours of earth, oak cedar and a little eucalyptus and game. The fruit is underlined by light, grainy tannins giving some grip, with soft acidity adding to the roundness. The wine carries to a light, fruity-earthy finish. This is a soft, sweet-fruited Costers del Segre Tempranillo red with raspberry, earth, cedar and eucalypt flavours on a grainy palate. Match with barbecued fare and casseroles over the next 3 years. Tempranillo fruit fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in oak. 16.5/20 Apr 2018 RRP $20.00
