2018 Rusty Mutt Conejo Joven Tempranillo

$35.00 $32.50 inc. GST

The colour is a dark ruby/violet with youthful purple hues. Dark cherries slowly reveal themselves after opening, and savoury meats, spices and plums begin to open up with time in the glass. The palate shows a terrific mix of fleshy red fruits, sour cherry, pomegranite juice and bramble berry acidity. Enjoy with Spanish omelete and chorizo, charcuterie – particularly cured pork, meaty tapas, pizza with olive, tomato and proscuitto.

Due to the mild, ocean influenced Mediterranean climate of McLaren Vale, a wide range of grape varieties grow well here. Tempranillo is widely grown in Spain where the climate and conditions can be much hotter than McLaren Vale. Its suitability for McLaren Vale is actually increasing as we experience hotter conditions with more heat events during the growing and ripening seasons. With only a few years of experience working with this variety, I’ve found that it becomes flavour ripe at a lower sugar level, which translates to lower alcohol in the bottle. This bright fruity young red is 1% alcohol lower than the other red wines I produce. The flavours and textures of Tempranillo work very well with a broad range of foods.
