Young, fresh and vibrant this is a tempranillo that gives you so much more bang for your buck and in this case, you’re getting a whole lot of bang for not very much buck.
After you’ve subsided the slow claps for my above level of genius which was displayed above, you’ll be very interested to know that this medium-bodied temp has got a fresh bouquet and palate and a rocking personality. Leaping from the glass are aromas of blackcurrants, subtle spice, dried herbs and savoury red fruits, topped off with swish, smoky French oak, which impressively finishes and enhances the wine. It’s not hard to see why we’re swooning over this little number and at less than $9 per bottle, you can swoon over it too.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

'Barossa Valley'. This is Australia's key wine brand overseas, in the US especially. It's our riposte to 'Champagne', 'Scotch' and 'Barolo'. My mind conjures these images, in this order: Shiraz, Penfolds wine, Maggie Beer condiments. All of which can GET - IN - MY - BELLY! But there is so much more to the Barossa than first glance. There are fringe (and not so fringe) winemakers actively working to classify the valley's subregions, and this is a very worthy cause. From Moppa to Seppeltsfield to Marananga there's a lot of variation, and the styles produced can vary immensely. This is the next step in the vision of this region (which, let's face it, is a baby in the scheme of things), as it gets acquainted with its strengths, weaknesses and future opportunities.It's a region that's not sorry to produce the big, fruit-driven wine styles that make it so popular. So drink to the future of the Barossa, because it's as bright as any other region on the world stage.
