Capital Wines [ACT], 'The Ambassador' Tempranillo 2021

This 2021 Capital Wines 'The Ambassador' Tempranillo, continues the quirky trend of labels based on political and parliamentary characters.

Ambassadors historically diplomatically pacify all parties. So is the delivery of this very gutsy and enjoyable Tempranillo.
This local derivative of the traditional Spanish chameleon-like variety, offers warmth, grippy smoothness, textural tannic grip and amplitude of ripe palate-pleasing aromas and flavours.
In its ambassadorial role, it pleases a cross-section of palate expectations in its generosity and abundance of primary ripe fruit in the mulberry and plum spectrum.

This is a wine that deserves cellaring and enjoyed as an accompaniment to robust dishes such as smokey chorizo.
