Bec Hardy Founders Choice Shiraz Tempranillo


A 70/30 blend of Shiraz and Tempranillo, this is blood red in colour. Richly flavoured with some earthy notes, animal skins and mushrooms. It is a touch rustic, but in a lovely way. A hint of black olives with a supple texture and some plushness on the palate, the flavours then move to the chocolate and liquorice end of the spectrum. Silky tannins and good length here, it is delicious now but with four to six years easily ahead, during which time we can expect some further improvement.
