Single block Tempranillo growing on red volcanic and limestone soils. Nose is complex delivering new leather, tobacco, cola and dried herbs. The wine is medium bodied with dry, fine grain tannins supported by sweet raspberry fruits. Elegant smooth wine that builds in intensity as it sits in the glass. Decant and give it time.
Mount Majura Vineyard Dry Spur Tempranillo 2021, Canberra District, NSW
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
