Spade Oak Heart of Gold Tempranillo 2017, Gisborne

Tempranillo from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 01-Sep-2020
Deep, medium ruby-red with a dark-garnet hue, slightly lighter on edge. The nose is aromatic with nuances of dark florals, smoky notes, along with red berries and cherries, unfolding spicy cigar box. Full-bodied, the palate has dark notes and bright, lively aromatics of red berries, cherries, melded with red florals. A whiff of a smoky note possessed the wine, unveiling meaty elements, savoury Kalamata olives and spices. The fruit is juicy and bright, supported by a dark chocolate rich tannin texture. Acidity is lively and balances, providing a lift to the smoky and mealy meat, olive elements. This is a moderately complex Tempranillo with red fruit and floral fragrance, smoky, meaty, savoury notes on a dark chocolate texture palate. Match with Brazillian meat roast and barbeque lamb over the next 3-5 years. 18+/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $20
