What kind of wine is tempranillo?
Tempranillo is known for its versatility, being the perfect partner to any number of dishes. It also offers serious value – you can get a quality bottle of imported Spanish tempranillo for a steal, although there’s every reason for you to be more patriotic, as Australian tempranillo is as good as any on the planet.
What does tempranillo taste like?
But in reality, declaring the taste of tempranillo is like declaring the length of a piece of string. This grape is famously neutral and terroir-expressive, so the soil, climate, production methods and barrel that it’s exposed to will have a real effect on the final taste of the wine.
