The Varietal: Tempranillo
A savory and medium-to-full-bodied red wine varietal from Spain, tempranillo is loved for its rich dark fruit flavours. Tempranillo is an innovative varietal for Brown Brothers that was released after great success at the winery’s cellar door. Brown Brothers 1889 Tempranillo was developed in the brand’s “kindergarten winery” where small batches of new varietals and techniques are trialed.
Pair Brown Brothers 1889 Tempranillo with traditional Spanish dishes like paella and tapas, or a spicy salami pizza topped with capsicum, capers, olives and cheese.
