2010 Heathcote Tempranillo

Ralph Kyte-Powell, Epicure, The Age, 23 August 2011

Pondalowie’s Bendigo wines offer complexity and interest without the eucalypt notes that sometimes characterise central Victorian reds. Tempranillo is a specialty.  This medium-bodied youngster offers black cherry and spice aromas, delicious sarsaparilla-like savoury flavours, good texture and fine balanced tannins.  Drink over 3 years with grilled lamb rumps; potato tortilla with jamon and anchovies.
