Swinging Bridge #006 ‘Tempinot’ Tempranillo Pinot Blend 2022
$ 34.00 incl. GST
90% Tempranillo and 10% Pinot Noir. Raised in seasoned oak, this blend is the result of Tom feeling the Tempranillo lacked mid palate weight, as well as a cheeky nod to the Hunter Valley’s historic Pinot/Shiraz blends. Fresh and lithe, a lovely bistro/tapas wine or high class BBQ red.
“Of the Hashtag series, the #003 Amber is probably my favourite, but the whole range is tasty and of good value. Under #006 hides Tempinot, you guessed it, Tempranillo and around 10% Pinot Noir because why not. I find it a bit challenging to discover great examples of Tempranillo out there. It seems Pinot gives a helping hand here.
Violets and kola nut, marshmallow root, sandy tannin, purple perfume in the mouth and savoury beetroot juice. This drinks easy and very tasty. Moreish. Tempranillo done well.” 92 points, Kasia Sobiesek, Winefront
