2022 Ministry of Clouds McLaren Vale Tempranillo Grenache
Versatility & Grace…
How do you capture the timelessness of San Sebastian’s pinchos bars and their delectable morsels of deliciousness? Our desire to create a wine that embodied this experience but equally at home gracing our tables of our homeland is the catalyst behind our Tempranillo Grenache. Designed to befit the myriad of cultural and social influences we embrace in Modern Australia, enjoy with family and friends and experiment with flavours from far-flung places.
This wine combines lifted notes of pomegranate, sarsaparilla, violets and nutmeg typical of McLaren Vale Tempranillo, with the red berried perfume and succulence of old vine Grenache. This medium bodied wine is pretty, but deeply flavoured, and deliberately moreish. A lithe and juicy wine, it errs on the blood orange, cherry, red berry spectrum on the palate supported by a long line of ferrous tannin.
Ideal serving temperature is 16 degrees. The most versatile wine in our range.. Try it with meats, game, poultry and seafood alike... grilled, stewed or with a whack of spice... east and west, variety is best. Be adventurous and give it a test! Cool cellaring between 5 years to 8 years will be rewarded.
