Tempranillo Red Wine
The grape varietal for which Spain is best known and key to its best-known appellations Rioja, Navarra, Ribera del Duero and Jumilla. Tempranillo makes for wines deep ruby in colour with fragrances of strawberry, tobacco and leather which give way to savoury cherry flavours and nuances of spice, clove, liquorice, fig and dill. Traditionally, tempranillo is not bottled on its own but rather will constitute the majority of a blend (up to 85%) it may share with the likes of grenache, carignan, graciano, mazuelo, merlot or cabernet sauvignon. However this is changing as a new generation of more intrepid growers seeks to harness the grape's full potential and experiment with varietal (i.e. 100%) tempranillo wines outside of its more famous appellations. Tempranillo is almost always oaked and is hugely versatile when pairing with food, showing a particular affinity to roast lamb, all grilled red meats, Mexican cuisine and all types of charcuteria.
