2015 Taylors Estate Tempranillo Clare Valley Tempranillo

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This soft and sultry tempranillo from Taylors will be just the ticket for that Mexican cuisine evening you have coming up with your mates, especially with some beef enchiladas. It's a multi-regional blend of Wrattonbully and Clare Valley, and shows appealing smells of blueberries, red cherries, soft spice and touches of toastiness on the nose, whilst the palate is more medium-bodied and deeply fruited, with truck-loads of cherry, raspberry and mulberry flavours, fine and talcy tannins, poised acidity, and a smooth, seductive finish. Excellent value beyond belief!

Winemaker's Notes

At release the wine is a ruby red with a vibrant purple hue. The wine displays blueberry fruit character with hints of vanilla bean and underlying subtle cigar box and spicy oak aromas.

This is a medium-bodied wine with flavours of blueberry, plums and subtle black cherry along with well integrated savoury French oak. There is a pleasing soft and silky texture to the mid palate and the wine has a long, persistent finish. This wine can be enjoyed upon release but will reward careful cellaring up to and possibly beyond 2020.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
A blend of Wrattonbully and Clare Valley grapes given Rolls Royce treatment in the winery. Light, bright crimson; the red cherry aromas of the bouquet are amplified on the totally delicious medium-bodied palate, with its exuberant display of red fruits, including red and black cherries, and superfine tannins.
