Joelle Thompson: "Tempranillo is most widely planted in Spain, Portugal and, to a growing extent, in Australia, but Gisborne winemaker Andy Nimmo is also getting in on the appeal of this medium bodied red with its soft fruity flavours and smooth body; this wine provides good value for money with complex fruit flavours, soft tannins and a spicy finish."

Cellaring: 3-4 years.
