Mr Riggs 2007 Yacca Paddock Tempranillo

I'm seeing an increasing number of impressive tempranillos from a variety of regions, suggesting the Spanish grape has a bright future in Australia. Made by McLaren Vale winemaker Ben Riggs from Adelaide Hills fruit, this is a very appealing wine that demonstrates precisely why tempranillo holds such promise. It has savoury notes, dark cherry flavours and plenty of big tannic oomph. Extremely enjoyable. $25.
