Nepenthe 2008 Tempranillo

This was one of the stars of the Adelaide Hills Wine Show - where it was a trophy winner. It was one of my favourite wines from a very strong show, showing the immense potential of "alternative" varieties in the Hills. You'll find ripe and juicy berry fruit flavours, savoury notes and a lovely softness on the palate. Medium-bodied, this is terrific wine with a wide range of cuisines. $25.
