The 2018 Hacienda Zorita Tempranillo wine has aromas of cedar, tobacco and vanilla accent dark-berry scents in front of a palate with edgy tannins and sharp acidity. Blackberry, black cherry, tobacco and vanilla are the key flavors on this good but grating Tempranillo that finishes with oaky flavors of vanilla and tobacco. This Zorita Tempranillo wine has an added dimension is the subtle use of oak which combines well with the soft ripe tannins.
The Hacienda Zorita Tempranillo is an award-winning red wine grown in the Duero Valley’s most remote and virtually unspoiled wine region. The Hacienda Zorita Tempranillo is made from selected grapes grown on a 72 ha. Vineyard in the Natural Park of Arribes del Duero, the Unamuno Vineyard in D.O Arribes del Duero. Here, we work with the latest viticulture techniques including the Smart-Dyson vine training method, allowing for better and more complete ripening of the grapes. We grow international varieties Syrah, Malbec, Cabarnet Sauvignon and Merlot as well as Spain’s Indigenous Tempranillo.
This Hacienda Zorita Tempranillo is best paired with Spanish charcuterie such as jamon Iberica or chorizo and Spanish cured cheese such as manchego.
