Spade Oak ‘Heart of Gold’ Gisborne Tempranillo 2016

Tempranillo from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 03-Jan-2018
Full, even, dark ruby-red colour with slight garnet hues. The nose is fragrant with bright, aromatic dark raspberry and dark-red cherry fruit along with a fine amalgam of red florals melded with earthy notes, unfolding spice nuances. Medium-bodied, the palate has bright and lively vibrantly aromatic fruit flavours of dark-red berry and cherry fruit along with suggestions of raspberries, lifted red florals and subtle nutty oak. The mouthfeel is elegantly poised and finely concentrated with supple tannin extraction and lively acidity. The wine has good energy and freshness, and carries to a bright, juicy finish. This is a bright, juicy and vibrant Tempranillo with red cherry, berry and raspberry fruit with lifted florals on a supple, lively palate. Serve with antipasto and tapas over the next 4 years. 90% Tempranillo with 10% Syrah from the ‘Spade Oak’ vineyard, indigenous yeast fermented to 12.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months seasoned oak with oak insert equivalent to 50% new oak. 18.0-/20 Jan 2018 RRP $24.95 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade’, the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews’ operates
