Mr Mick Tempranillo is crafted in typical Mr Mick style, this wine has subtle French oak flavours with smooth tannins, distinctive varietal character of cherries and strawberries, a hint of spice and a long lingering finish.
And we’ve found ourselves a bargain. Clare Valley Tempranillo with all guns blazing, at a snip of a price. A snip, I tell you.
It’s just an excellent wine to drink. You can see this being widely enjoyed. The flavour profile has a sweetness to it but it works. It tastes of redcurrant t, cola, vanilla and wood spice, or thereabouts, but it’s fruit-driven and generous and just generally eager-to-please. There’s only enough tannin to give the tannin shape, which is apt in context. Love the fruit flesh here. – Campbell Mattinson
“A fruit-driven version of this Spanish variety that shows all its typical earthy, old spice, vanilla, cherry and cola characters to start, then as you splash it in your mouth you find it quite rich, slurpy and sweet nature’d with sticky and mid-strength black tea tannins making up its finishing mouth feel. It’s easy-drinking and spot on with the barbecue smoking and the steaks char-grilling.”
“Good value for money, straightforward, tasty red wine with fresh raspberry and coconut aromas laced with walnut. It’s medium-bodied and firm on the palate, with tight structure and measured grip: a good food wine. It could also take a little cellaring.” – view on HuonHooke.com
