Gemtree Luna Temprana Tempranillo 20132013-Luna-Temprana

Style: Full-bodied red.

Region: McLaren Vale, SA

Tasting note: Concentrated cherry and plum, vibrant with grainy tannins. While made in a Joven style (Fresh and vibrant with little or no oak contact to be drunk young) I can’t help but feel that this wine may have benefitted with some time in oak to soften the massive tannins. In lieu of pouring it into an oak barrel, leave this wine in the bottle for another 12 months at least.

Final Say: Vibrant, bustling and a little bit full on, buy it for what it will evolve into. $16.99 a bottle.

Score: 15.5 out of 20
