2017 Texas High Plains Tempranillo
2017 Texas High Plains Tempranillo

Our 2017 High Plains Tempranillo started as a relatively traditional blend of key Spanish varieties— Tempranillo with Mourvèdre (known as Monastrell in Spain). Later in the final stages of finishing this wine, one of the aspiring winemakers in the cellar accidentally added two barrels of our finest Italian variety, Teroldego.  Though non-traditional, this wine has quickly become one of our favorite vintages of High Plains Tempranillo!  We hope you will enjoy this unique wine as well.

Tasting Notes
The High Plains Temp is a lovely ruby color with a classic bouquet of leather, cigar, cherry, blackberry, and cedar. On the palate you’ll find some cherry and earth notes, with medium tannins and balanced acidity. The mouthfeel is relatively soft with lingering cocoa notes.
Winemaker Notes
Composition: 86% Tempranillo, 9% Mourvèdre, 5% Teroldego
Food Pairing Notes
Cheeses like Manchego or cheddar, beef fajitas, red meats, pizza, and vegetarian dishes. This is a wine that holds up nicely to tomato based food.
