Tempranillo (“tem-pra-nee-yo”) is a black wine grape with a thick skin. It suits a wide range of climates and grows particularly well in the chalkier, limestone areas of the South Burnett where it ripens early and produces a rich, dark coloured wine.
Tempranillos of this region tend to be spicy with bright berry fruits and excellent tannins. They are a wonderful match with local South Burnett beef and lamb dishes!
Tempranillo has become and increasing popular variety with Australian consumers as it offers a full bodied and full flavoured red wine without being overly heavy.
