Bodegas Age Siglo Rioja Crianza
La Rioja
Available by the dozen
A mix of Temparanillo, Grenache and Mazuelo, from Rioja D.O.C. along Ebro River. Bodegas Age was established in 1881 from the legacy of three ancient family cellars with a long tradition of winemaking. Their distinguished origins are there to be seen in the ancient wineworks of Don Felix de Azpilicueta and in the bodega's paradise, where bottles of the earliest wines are still cellared. The estate remains family owned and operated, the traditional winemaking has ensured Siglo endures as an international ambassador of Bodegas Age.

Rioja Alta is the one place on earth where the Tempranillo grape grows to its full potentials of aroma and taste sensations. Bodega Age is situated right at the heart of Rioja Alta, 500 hectares of closely husbanded mature vines. Batches of Temparanillo, Grenache and Mazuelo are destemmed and crushed, followed by one week's fermentation at temperatures between 25C and 28C. During this time, macerations and continuous pumpovers help to extract the maximum colour, flavour and tannins. Racked after fermentation to remove sedimentery lees at the bottom of vats, transferred into 225 litres American oak casks for a year, bottled and aged for a further term under the bodega cellars for several months.
 
Bright, garnet red with purple hues. Fruity nose, cherries and bay leaf characters, complexed by notes of toasty vanilla oak, cocoa and spice after a year under oak. The palate is structured, elegant and persistent, elegant and velvety smooth, full of dark bramble and savoury olive flavours, supported by delicate tannins. A match to succulent roasted meats, gourmandise game recipes or fine, ripe cheese.
Bodegas Alion Ribera Del Duero
Ribera Del Duero
Available in cases of 6
A pure Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) wine from vineyards adjacent the Bodega Alion wineworks and from mother company Vega Sicilia's own estate properties at Valbuena. Alion is crafted in the modern Bordeaux cru classe style, using up to date equipment and lots of new French oak.

Bodega Alion caused quite a stir when it was inaugurally released. Aficionados of the mother winery Vega Sicilia's established style rejected the more modern, newly oaked, wider Ribera Del Duero delineation of Alion. It has since become a regional classic. Vines are planted to chalk dominated, minerals rich topsoils over water retaining schist bedrocks, the same structures found under the finest Port vineyards further down the Duero. Fruit is treated to a traditional vinification and malolactic in steel vats. The following January, Alion is transfered to a selection of new French Nevers oak barrels for a year's maturation and a further twelve months ageing in bottle under the estate cellars.
 
Bright deep red colour with streaks of violet. Full and elegant nose, a wide range of aromas, vanilla, ripe fruits, syrup and compotes. Good intensity of spicy, gamey fruit, showing chocolate, red and black berries plus a note of soy sauce. The palate is opulent and elegant with harmonious tannins providing a subtle backbone. Great aromatic persistence in the mouth, the tannins will support at least ten years ageing.

Bremerton Tempranillo Graciano
Langhorne Creek
Available by the dozen
It's a bit of an enduring truism along the banks of Bremer River, that you need double letters in your name to qualify as a Langhorne Creek winemaker. Viz the Willson sisters, the Messrs Potts and Blass. Outstanding quality fruit and excellence in the art of vinification are essential too. The Willson family had been selling their grapes to the nation's most conspicuous brands, before they took the plunge to retain the best of harvest for their own label. Graciano is oft blended with suave and stylish Tempranillo, to fashion the most engaging and topical wines in Rioja.

Bremerton take their oak program very seriously, employing the best coopered 220 litre barriques to ensure a subtle and complementary influence of oak. The Willsons have been grapegrowers in Langhorne Creek for some considerable time but it wasn't until young Rebecca grabbed the reins to process and label her own fruit that the family name became synonymous with superlative Langhorne Creek wines. Following vinification in small batch open top fermenters and a judicious maturation in a selection of the finest oak barriques, components are assembled to define the brave synergy between Graciano and Tempranillo, without masking the distinctive character of Langhorne Creek.

Castelli have chosen to fashion their harvest in a manner which highlights the bright berry fruit aromas and showcases the lovely savoury tannins which define Tempranillo.

dArenberg Sticks Stones Tempranillo Grenache
McLaren Vale
Available by the dozen
Chester Osborn was one of the first growers to plant Tempranillo in McLaren Vale. This torrid Spanish grape is well suited to the Mediterranean climes of the region and a traditional blending partner for some of d'Arenberg's favourite old world styles. Grenache and Tempranillo work beautifully together, the Portuguese mix of Tinta Cao and Souzao provide wonderful complexity and depth. And the quirky name? Sticks and stones may break bones but will never hurt, in truth, much of the fruit is picked off sticks planted to parched, stony soils.

Bunches of Tempranillo and Grenache, Souzao and Tinta Cao Souzao are picked to a staggered schedule as the varieties come into their own ripening. Fruit is gently treated to d'Arenberg's rubber toothed crusher, vinified batch by batch in traditional headed down open fermenters. When tannin extraction is just right, batches are basket pressed and transferred to a mix of seasoned and new French and American oak barriques for completion of ferments and malolactic on sedimentery yeast lees. Components are aged for a year before asemblage, minimal handling ensures maximum flavour while reducing the oak influence, unfined and unfiltered, a harmless deposit may adhere to the bottle.
