Did you know that Tempranillo is derived form the Spainish word temprano which means "early"?
Daniel Binet is one of the Hunter Valley’s young winemaking stars with a wealth of awards to his name. His new label is proving a great success as you’ll discover with this elegant Tempranillo.
Tempranillo often ripens earlier that most other red varieties and it is one of Spain's noble grape varieties. This variety is an exciting wine with good colour, low acid/tannins. The palate, earthy with wild fruit aromas. The grapes from this wineare sourced from the iconic Carabobla Vineyard in Lovedale, Hunter Valley.
James Halliday Australian Wine Companion
Rated in the same early ripening group as pinot noir, tempranillo has no business being in the Hunter Valley, let alone producing a wine with this depth of crimson colour; it has exceptional drive, line and length, bursting with cherry fruit. No one could fail to enjoy this wine.
