Black Hills Tempranillo 2020

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaWinemaker Ross Wise is having fun unravelling the tempranillo grape in the south Okanagan. The 2019 was an excellent effort, but in 2020, we see the potential for this well known Spanish variety. There is a welcomed subtly here, including only 13.5 percent alcohol. The nose is a mix of red and blue fruits with desert sagebrush and a floral underside allowed to surface by using older wood. The flavours are full, the textures silky, suggesting you can drink it now. The classic match is lamb.Tasted: 07 September 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
