Moppity Vineyards Cato La Lucha Tempranillo 2017

A red and black fruit mix that veers between raspberry and cherry. Oak spice remnants, softer - nigh sweeter - aspects of vanilla.

Palate shows succulent fruit on entry, blue fruit with woody spice. Silken threaded tannins long, on both flavour and finesse. With some time the spicier elements come to the fore, brown spiced hints of cinnamon along with freshly cracked pepper. 

Quite possibly the most finest expression of Australian Tempranillo I've had the pleasure of tasting. 94
