Running With Bulls Tempranillo 2011, Barossa, SA

Image

$20 from Bottega Tasca (Lygon St), $18.50 from Auswine. Intense black ruby colour with a slight purple-garnet rim. On the nose, I’m getting light, lifted rose florals, but then there’s a slight disconnect with deeper black raspberry candy, anise and nutmeg. It’s a medium-bodied wine, but man! it’s acidity is flooded to the ceiling! That’s a surprising kick once you take a swig of this drink. 13.5% alc. The fruit flavours dominate with raspberry, cherry and red plum flavour. The subtle tannins round off a well-weighted wine. Long finish, drink now – 2018. 88/100.

2012 vintage: $18 from Winestar (min. 2 btls).
