Tempranillo

High Country Tempranillo 6 Pack - Gapsted Wines

This special Pack brings together three bottles of each of the award-winning 2017 and 2018 vintages of our High Country Tempranillo.

Our 2018 Tempranillo won Best Wine of Show at the recent North East Victorian Wine Challenge 2018, while our 2017 vintage - which is in limited supply - was awarded a Silver medal.

Our High Country 2018 Tempranillo won the top award after sweeping a number of categories, including Top Gold in the Tempranillo class, and trophies for Best Red Table Wine and Best Alternative Red Variety.

What's all the fuss about? Gapsted Wines’ Senior Winemaker, Michael Cope-Williams, explains: 

“We’re turning traditional Tempranillo on its head and focusing on the wonderful fruit aromas and rich, textural flavours of the variety.

“It’s an unusual approach with such a highly regarded and long-established variety, so we’re overjoyed that both this release and the last one has appealed to so many people.” 

The accolades for the 2018 vintage continue the success of the 2017 High Country Tempranillo, which also secured the 2018 King Valley Tempranillo Winery of the Year at the 2018 Melbourne International Wine Competition. 

TASTING NOTES:

VINEYARD REGION: King Valley

THE WINE: This wine displays a vibrant cherry red colour. This wine shows aromas of blueberry and black cherry with hints of ground coriander and chocolate. These aromas lead to a juicy and plush palate of dark berries, chocolate tannins and a rich, textured finish.

FOOD MATCHES: The perfect match to tapas or Spanish slow cooked lamb shanks.
