Aplanta Alentejo 2017

Tempranillo, or “little early one” because of its eager ripening, is a noble red grape of vast expression. It might be young and fresh showing the easy, primary berries and plums or it may take on a spicier, more leathern complexity through oak aging for which it has an affinity. Spending an increasing amount of time in oak Tempranillo shows its beguiling longevity which begins in the realm of full, spicy fruits and evolves into more of the medium bodied, floral, herbal, earthen, tobacco, cedar spice and vanilla from its transcending duration in oak casks be they French or American.

Food Pairings

Very versatile. The better cuts of lamb. Most any meat braised or stewed. Game birds and poultry, especially duck.
