SUMMER WINE PAIRING: TEMPRANILLO
Tempranillo (Temp-rah-neeho) is one of the most on-trend varietals in Australia at the moment, with a growing number of Australian brands showcasing the best of what this variety has to offer.
McGuigan Black Label Tempranillo launched early this year, the newest member of our Black Label range of varietals. Black Label is rich, generous and affordable, and is your contemporary guide to Australia’s best-known wines, as well as emerging varietals. Each bottle of McGuigan Black Label is packed full of varietal fragrance and flavour, ensuring that need not be a connoisseur to enjoy your wine at any Summer occasion.
Tempranillo originated in the Rioja region in Southern Spain, but is now widely planted in Australia, with the grapes being suited to our continental climate. Our Black Label Tempranillo is crimson red in colour with ruby hues. With aromas of strawberry and raspberry on the nose, the palate delivers upfront red berry fruits, with toasty oak undertones leading to a savoury finish. This approachable, full-flavoured wine derives from our various dry and irrigated vineyards.
Don’t feel you need to shy away from red wines in Summer. Whilst you might be inclined to reach for a chilled white wine, rose or sparkling, red wine can still be enjoyed just as much. Varietals like Tempranillo, Malbec and Pinot Noir are all red wines that pair well with BBQ food – their taste profiles complementing the food, giving you the opportunity to experiment with flavours. If you haven’t already, it’s time you discovered the McGuigan Black Label range and try our most recent release, Tempranillo.
