Maravedi Tinto 2019
Varietal: Tempranillo, Syrah
Region: Castille, Spain
Great value for money Organic Wine. Some of the nicest Tempranillo under $20 we have tried.
This is an excellent example of Tempranillo-Syrah from old Spanish dry-farmed Organic vineyards. Deep purple with a ruby rim, displaying aromas of red fruit and blackberries with slight spicy notes of freshly ground pepper. Medium bodied and juicy on palate, yet with fine tannins and a refreshing finish..
Maravedí - the name of an ancient Spanish coin – symbolises the value of preserving the ancestral vineyards of the beautiful Spanish highlands and this wine is produced from organically farmed old vineyards in Castile.
The continental climate, with sunny days and cool nights, allow for intense fruit and excellent varietal definition, while retaining remarkable freshness.
The Organic Grapes are picked at night and in the early morning hours and shipped quickly to a state-of-the-art winery for destemmed, light crushing and fermentation under temperature control in stainless steel. Maceration lasts for 8-10 days to achieve a perfectly balanced style without excessive extraction. No oak is used to achieve a pure expression of the combination of Tempranillo and Syrah.
This tempranillo will beautifully pair some Spanish tapas or a nice tomato sauce pasta.
