Texas Hill Country Tempranillo 2016 truly showcases Texas terroir. This Tempranillo is distinctly different from a High Plains Tempranillo and showcases earthier and woody tones. A side by side can be impressive! In addition to drawing from the family vineyard, Kuhlken Vineyards, this vintage also highlights some local Hill Country growers we have known for years. The Speier’s focus primarily on Tempranillo in their family vineyard and it is one of the most me-ticulously cared for vineyards around. Everything is managed by hand – in fact you can barely fit a tractor in the vineyard.
Notes of red cherry, leather, spice and tobacco on the nose are followed by a juicy mouthfeel and balanced acidity. We love this versatile wine with Spanish cheeses such as Manchego and is a great wine for pork or vegetarian dishes.
