Tildio Estate 2016 Reserve Tempranillo, Lake Chelan, WA
We LOVE Tempranillo: the wines of Rioja seduced us, and we passionately share our version with Tildio club members. Three things separate - we think elevate - the Reserve from our classic Tempranillo:
1 - We pick it super ripe
2 - We let it rest on the skins throughout its fermentation
3 - We enhance it with a small addition of a very high quality Mouvèdre
The resulting wine balances mature fruit, elegant spice, and Tempranillos signature tannin backbone. A seductively complex wine.
