Hans Herzog Tempranillo
A deep, rich ruby colour with wonderful aromas and flavours of blackberries, dark cherries, dark chocolate, cedar and spices with earthy undertones. A juicy, mouth-filling, elegant wine with great acidity structure balanced by masculine tannins. A perfect wine to enjoy with your evening cigar!
This is Spain’s most famous red grape variety widely planted in the Rioja and Ribera del Duero. Tempranillo can be enjoyed young, but the best ones are aged for several years in oak barrels. This Tempranillo spent 15 days on the skins progressing to a wild yeast fermentation before being pressed and transferred into French barriques for malolactic fermentation. This great “Spaniard” has been aged on its fine lees for 18 months. No fining and no filtration to maintain its beautiful aromas and flavours.
