Bodegas Tempore - 2018
A limited edition new ‘No Sulphur Added’ organic red from Spain, that’s just sensational. From 100% Grenache (Garnacha) grown in the Bajo Aragón region to the west of Catalonia and Barcelona. Tempore (the name of the estate) means time, and this wine is the result of four generations of viticulturists caring for the organic vines, and making wine as naturally as possible, and without sulphur.
Rarely will you taste a wine with as much expressive fruit, on both nose and palate. To say big and vibrant is an understatement, flavours of framboise, strawberry and blackberry are just for starters, this wine keeps giving and its flavours are completely unclouded by sulphur addition. Its juiciness and velvety smooth mouthfeel make this an ideal BBQ or summer picnic wine, which could also be enjoyed lightly chilled.
Even if the weather turns out to be cloudy or damp, this wine is guaranteed to shine brightly!
As no sulphur is added, this can have a slight spritz on opening. This will dissipate with aeration in the glass.
