Full of fresh flavours of dark cherry, our Lost Acre Tempranillo is the perfect match for anything with a bit of charring off the barbeque.
And you can serve it cold.
We could say "lightly chilled", but in this weather, have it as cold as you like - you'll still get the vibrant flavours coming through.
It's had minimal contact with oak, so all the fruit flavours from the vineyard have stayed with the wine, and makes it one of the few reds that many "white wine drinkers" find appealing. So it's a wine you can share. Or not!
So why not bring along a wine that's a bit special, a bit different, and also a bit fun to you next barbeque?
