100% TEMPRANILLO. RATED 91/100
This big, Spanish red is made from 100% Tempranillo grapes, and is an absolute steal under $15!
Rated 91/100 by Sam Kim (www.wineorbit.co.nz) and 4 Stars & 17/20 by Raymond Chan, it simply over delivers on quality & flavour for the price. Grandeza Gran Tradición is aged for 5 years before release, making it one of only a handful of wineries who ensure the wine is at its very best, before launching onto the market.
It is a deliciously smooth, rounded red wine from the sun-drenched central Spanish plains. Hot, dry summers and cold winters are key to achieving the perfect balance of flavours, while the old vine fruit gives depth and complexity to the blend. Grapes are hand-harvested from sloping vineyards in Central Spain, with vines aged between 10 - 30 years old. Sam Kim describes, "wonderfully matured and beautifully complex, the wine shows spiced plum, dried cherry, game, tapenade, dark mushroom and toasted almond characters. The palate is silky and rounded, delivering sweet berry flavours together with rich savoury notes, elegantly framed by polished tannins."
