Possibly our best Tempranillo to date.
About The Wine
This wine is an exciting development for Ryan O'Meara and his Express Winemakers label. This is the first Tempranillo off their own block in Great Southern, grown and picked by Ryan and his family and brought to bottle with as little intervention as possible.
It was fermented as whole clusters ramping up the spicy and exotic features of the variety, pushing the boundaries of savouriness while keeping it firmly in the gluggable red category.
All things considered, this is a stonkingly good buy. It's everything you could want in cool-climate sub-$30 Tempranillo. It's spicy and juicy, a plush version of a medium bodied red. A tasty Temp for all occasions.
About Express Winemakers
Express Winemakers is Ryan O'Meara's pint-sized wine operation from the deep south of WA.
From kicking off in 2011, Ryan has assembled a group of top-flight vineyards from around the Great Southern that supply him with top-flight fruit to make his fun and creative range of wines.
There's some serious value to be had in the Express range, from funky skinsy whites, through spicy cool-climate reds and everything in between.
Express Winemakers is a terrific example of the ever-rising tidal wave of young and adventurous WA producers reinventing the west!
