Tempranillo Blend 2018 – Black Market Deal #38102
- Medium bodied
This Black Market Rioja deal indeed rocks! It’s from one of the region’s best, made from bush-vine tempranillo (with a splash of garnacha and graciano) and crafted with a light touch to accentuate the pristine fruit. It was first fermented in concrete and then aged in large old oak for twelve months, adding texture to the palate of firm fruits and a few more savoury notes. No oaky notes or overbearing grip here. It is an absolutely rockin’ wine - juicy, but not playful. Structured, but not serious. Red berries build on aniseed, mixed with hard herbs and a long, savoury finish. Decant and enjoy!

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.
