2018 'ANDREW WATSON' TEMPRANILLO
This wine is named in honour of Andrew Watson Anderson Gibson, much loved patriarch of the Wilson/Gibson family. Tempranillo is a Spanish grape variety and is the main grape used to produce the famous Rioja red wines. This estate grown Hunter Tempranillo is a medium bodied wine displaying a ripe raspberry fruit palate with hints of liquorice and spice. Twelve months maturation in French and Amercian oak barrels has added some wonderful and subtle toasty characters.
Best matched with white bean and chorizo casserole or roast suckling pig.
Named Family Wines.
Hunter Valley, New South Wales.
