Tar & Roses Tempranillo 2020
Tasting NotesThe 2020 Tar & Roses Tempranillo has a burgundy red hue. A complex nose of raspberries and spice with currants, red liquorice and hints of incense and musk. This wine has both a sweet and savoury palate which combined well with the substantial cocoa powder tannins. Raspberries, pomegranates and spice give fruit drive and complexity which sits comfortably on a bed of powdery tannins. A touch of chocolate on the finish rounds out this opulent wine.
The grapes ripened much slower than normal and in parts not at all. The style of this years Tempranillo is in contrast to normal years. It is more of a joven style. A lighter lifted fresher style of wine with jubes and Turkish delight on the nose complemented by the ever present cocoa powder tannins.
