2020 "Gold Dust Vineyard" Estate Tempranillo

Our Price: $30.00

Product Code: DV20ETMP

We are very excited to finally release our very first Tempranillo from our Gold Dust Estate Vineyard! This wine exhibits the beautiful, classic, and savory characteristics of the Tempranillo grape, opening up with aromas of dried fig, fresh rolling tobacco, and tomato leaf, which lead into flavors of cherries and plumb laced in just a touch of clove and vanilla before finishing with chewy tannin and bright acidity. This wine makes a great paring with BBQ dishes, smoked meats, ribs, and of course, both Spanish and Mexican foods.

Our Tempranillo was destemmed and fermented in open-air bins for three weeks using only indigenous yeast. The wine was pressed off into two old French Oak Barrels and one old American Oak barrel (a nod to classic Rioja-style Tempranillo, which often seems some American oak aging), where it aged for 18 months before being bottled without fining or filtration.
