Olcaviana (Spain) 2019 Tempranillo
91 Points/ 4.5 Stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
"Sweetly fruited and immediately appealing, the wine shows lifted aromas of dark plum and mulberry together with mixed spice, tapenade and almond on the nose. The palate delivers
succulent fruit flavours, beautifully framed by fine tannins, making it approachable and fabulously drinkable. At its best: now to 2023."

The Sierra Norte Bodega is located in Requena (Valencia) about approximately 600 meters above sea level. The finca has around 60 hectares of vineyards. All vineyards at Sierra Norte are certified organic. The winery is proud to be the first cellar in Valenciana to obtain full certification in 2000. Growing Tempranillo, Cabernet-Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Bobal in reds, and Macabeo, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc in whites.
This flashy 100% Tempranillo is satisfying, with rich, dark red fruit-cherries and plums-on the nose, touched with a delicate floral note. The palate is vibrant and juicy, with just the right amount of acidity, while the soft tannins provide underlying structure to carry the fruit throughout the wine's lengthy finish.
Excellent with all sorts of tapas, pasta, charcuterie, light meat cuts or barbecues.
