Tar & Roses Tempranillo 2016
Dense, dry and full, this Tempranillo is a delectable blend of blueberries, plums and savoury tannin, with hints of charcoal, coconut, star anise, nutmeg and chocolate around the edges. It’s long and elegant, taking you on a more-ish journey right to the end. In warm weather, try it slightly chilled. Sweet plums and rhubarb on the palate, plush and round. Well balanced with substantial chalky tannin, the wine finishes rich and long.
Red fruits at the beginning of the journey but more flavours come in as the wine moves across the palate. There is also depth, and savoury characters. It’s a cracking wine.

Top DropsBlood red. My word, this is terrific value tempranillo: all the supple black fruit and deeply satisfying, plump-tannin umami savour you could want at a very reasonable price.

Lester JesbergAnother varietal gem from the Tar & Roses team. The delightful loganberry and licorice aromas are confirmed by a succulent, utterly delicious, firm, fine palate. In Spain we’d drink a wine like this with lamb from an asador. In Australia, good old roast lamb will do. 4.5 stars.

Top PicksSpain’s workhorse red, given an Aussie accent of youthful, full-bodied plushness with dark cherries, licorice and sarsaparilla-like flavours. Good with chorizo.
