2021 Tempranillo

Bleasdale has played around with Tempranillo on and off for the past 15 years, useful in fortified wine blending, Tempranillo also makes delicious table wines. The 2021 vintage presented an opportunity to make a youthful and juicy red and so when we were offered a small parcel of grapes we leapt at the chance.

Bleasdale has played around with Tempranillo on and off for the past 15 years, useful in fortified wine blending, Tempranillo also makes delicious table wines. The 2021 vintage presented an opportunity to make a youthful and juicy red and so when we were offered a small parcel of grapes we leapt at the chance. This wine has been made with minimal yet attentive winemaking and is bottled with low sulphites for early consumption, a perfect spring/summer red.

Bright purple/red, the perfume is inviting with cherry cola and raspberry from whole berry fermentation along with some baked earth, citrus peel, clove and wild thyme notes. The palate is juicy and fresh with crunchy tannins that freshen the palate ready for the next mouthful.
