Burgo Viejo Palacio de Primavera Rioja Tinto 2019
- Medium bodied
Tinto is the word the Spaniards use for red wine, coming from the word ink, which says something about their big, bold, red wines and the possible state of your teeth after a few glasses! It’ll be hard not to drink a few glasses of this 100% tempranillo Rioja tinto once the bottle is open. Dark berries and cinnamon jump from the glass and it’s full of plums, blueberries and nutmeg on the palate. It’s easy, soft and full of fruit. If you are a tempranillo fan, but would prefer a mouthful of fruit over tannin - this is your wine.
“A fruity Tempranillo showcasing blueberries and blackberries with some black walnuts and stone too. Medium to full body, round and creamy tannins and a direct finish. Drink now”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Jack doesn't live here - Tempranillo does. It makes Jack its bitch. Tempranillo may be relatively new on the scene in Australia, but it's as widespread in Spain as Shiraz is in Australia. Rioja have strict regulations on wines classified by the region, and require the wine to be certain lengths of time in barrel and then in bottle, and allows the producer to classify based on these restrictions as: Joven (none to limited oak contact), Crianza (intermediate oak and bottle age) and Reserva (extended oak/bottle aging). The time spent in oak is generally judged based on fruit intensity, but the one thing you will find is that quality is pretty impressive across the board, from crunchy young Joven to luscious Crianza to blockbuster Reserva. Welcome to the vinous heartland of Spain. It smells and tastes amazing.
