Tempore Generación 46 Garnacha-Tempranillo 2018

21.00

Description

A symbiotic marriage of Spain’s two greatest red grapes aged in two oaks.

Organic Grenache and Tempranillo grapes are fermented separately using indigenous yeasts from the vineyards, before being put into separate barrel sets — the Grenache in French oak, the Tempranillo in American — to age for 12 months. The final blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Tempranillo was decided before bottling.

Dark cherry in colour and highly perfumed, aromas of wild strawberry, garrigue, leather and vanilla swirl and intermingle. Silky and full on the palate, with chocolate powder tannins and a fine bone minerality, black and red berry fruits dominate initially with elements of coffee bean, tobacco leaf, coconut and pepper all evident as the wine opens. Smooth, soft and seamless, showing the art of blending contrasts.

Producer: Tempore

The Yago Aznar family belong to this region of Lécera in Aragón, attuned to the extreme climate and tough landscape with a shared passion for wine-making spanning four generations of viticulturists. Today the 70 hectare estate is run by siblings Paula and Víctor Yago Aznar and their organically certified operation is predicated on the principle of 'Tempore' or time, or more precisely 'seedtime', leaving the vines to express themselves free of intervention and with the utmost respect for the land.

Here they cultivate exclusively autochthonous varieties of the region, Garnacha, Tempranillo, Macabeo and white Garnacha grapes, with 70+ year old traditional Garnacha bush vines coexisting with younger fully trellised vineyards. The entire estate is organic with a new state of the art winery built in 2002.
