Penfolds Cellar Reserve Tempranillo is sourced from McLaren Vale and is a unique, Australian expression of this grape variety. Displaying typical fruit characteristics of berries, liquorice, spice and nectar, the 14 months of oak maturation in seasoned and new oak have added great complexity to the palate while pronounced tannins provide a lengthy finish. This fruit driven wine showcases a contemporary vinous reflection of a single-vineyard, single fermentation and single variety.
