We are starting to see many of Australia’s wine regions produce alternative varieties but it’s unusual to see a Spanish winery take their most famous grape, Tempranillo and blend it with the French Cabernet. But who are we to knock experimentation when the results are this good? It’s a berry good blend if you’ll excuse the pun, lots of black cherries and blackcurrants with other notes of leather, coffee as well as integrated vanilla oak. The palate is dreamy and soft with the trademark tannins of both varieties merging well.
Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo are the grapes that bestow their nobility on Gran Coronas - a wine of a deep red hue, with ochre and brick-red touches from its ageing.
Deeply opaque cherry red wine with garnet highlights. Intensely fruity with spicy nuances (clove) against a backdrop of balsamic woodland undergrowth (mastic, bay leaf). Silky on the palate, with very fine tannins displaying a touch of fruit (stewed black cherries) and undertones of toast.
Perfect with cold meats and meat dishes. Serve at 17°C
