Tempranillo, a dark red grape originating from Spain, derives its name from the Spanish "temprano," meaning 'early', signifying its early ripening nature. They are often described as medium-bodied, striking a harmonious balance between lighter and fuller-bodied wines. This balance, coupled with moderate to high acidity, lends the wines a refreshing quality with vibrant fruity flavours and a complex symphony of aromas.
In addition to the above, it is the versatility of tempranillo red wine in complimenting a range of foods that contributes to its popularity. Its moderate acidity acts as a versatile palate cleanser, making it well-suited for pairing with a diverse array of cuisines.
