2 x Gold Medals Awarded: ''Featuring aroma of red fruits, plums & walnut. Extraordinary depth of flavour. Good weight and great length.'' 94 Points, Gourmet Traveller Wine Guide
Hi Folks, Today's featured wine is almost too good to be true... Its not everyday that we get access to a 15 year old Multi-Gold Medal Winning Spanish Tempranillo from one of the top Spanish winemaker's Alejandro Fernandez! Alejandro is one of the biggest inspirations behind the rebirth of Spanish Tempranillo over the last 25 years. He only releases his Reds in optimum years and that is exactly what we have today! The Alejandro Fernandez Dehesa La Granja Tempranillo 2007 is aged 24 months in Barrel and than close to 6 years in bottle before release. With 15 years of age its very silky, impeccably balanced and elegant. Its highlighted by lush notes of ripe blackberries, vanilla, tobacco, mint, licorice with nice savouriness as well. Its a superb Tempranillo and is only $35.95 (a great steal!) If you still need a little more incentive than it is hard to ignore the stirring words of appreciation coming from the local and international wine scribes most notably Gourmet Traveller Wine Guide who described it in hush tones ''Extraordinary depth of flavour. Good weight and great length.''
“Featuring aromas of roasted walnut, chinotto and plum aromas. Generous with developed red fruits & roasted nuts. Finishes long and sweet with some mocha/espresso notes. Extraordinary depth of flavour. Good weight and great length.” 94 Points, Gourmet Traveller Wine Guide
"Low and slow winemaking here. Serious feeling tempranillo. Has that curious and kind of appealing scent of an old campfire then fig and date dried fruits, a splash of ripe currants. Indeed, the soft finish and licks of dark berry fruit are very appealing, and a Chinese five spice note hits a high. It's savoury, rippling with fine ribbons of tannin. Quite lovely in its zone." 91 Points, Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
"Brilliant ruby. Smoke- and spice-accented aromas of redcurrant and cherry, with a hint of vanilla in the background. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering lively red fruit flavors that become sweeter with air. Closes on a smoky note, with slow-building tannins and lingering coconut and spicecake nuances." 90 Points, Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
