Yealands Estate SV Tempranillo 2018 Awatere Valley, Marlborough
Immediately varietal, fruity and oaky with aromas of plum, strawberry and cherry, a savoury Awatere signature at the core with a stony minerality and toasty oak moments. Dry, firm, savoury, fruity and very youthful on the palate reflecting what the nose suggested. Firm, tense tannins and acidity to match, the core of fruit and Awatere savoury notes offer balance and length. A wine to decant for service or serve with food. Best from 2020 through 2024.
