Judges Comments:

Tempranillo is a very old grape that is Spain’s number 1 wine grape and is most famous for producing the wines of Rioja (ree-ocka). For those with hoarding traits, this is a variety that develops with age. This one has dark fruit richness, savoury meaty notes with spice and a big, rich, mouth-filling flavour. A perfect match to red meat, ham and roasted vegetables. Not only a great example of this variety, but also quite simply a great red wine – it’s the Champion Red Wine of the show!

Pairing Recommendation:

Robust wines for robust food flavours. Try with the Sunday roast, burger and ribs, steak, sausages or game. Great with pizza and tomato-based pasta dishes. Take to a pot-luck dinner or a BBQ with the good friends.
