Angelicus Wines in Ferguson Valley received a lovely surprise when their 2014 Tempranillo made in onto the UK Independent 14 Best Tempranillo Wines list.

Here’s what the British online newspaper had to say about the Geographe wine.

“From a rocky vineyard in the Geographe wine area of Western Australia comes this 99 per cent Tempranillo, one per cent Grenache, wine produced from five clones of Tempranillo brought to Australia from Ribera del Duero and Rioja. Huge flavours of plums, mulberries and dark fruit allied to smooth tannins with overtones of chocolate and spices.”

Only Spanish and Australian Tempranillos made it onto the list, with Victorian and South Australian wineries also receiving honours.

Independent says, “In recent years, Tempranillo vines and Rioja expertise have made their way to Australia, producing superb quality wines that are contnuing to impress.”
