4.5 Stars - Raymond Chan
"Deep, medium ruby-red with a dark-garnet hue, slightly lighter on edge. The nose is aromatic with nuances of dark florals, smoky notes, along with red berries and cherries, unfolding spicy cigar box. Full-bodied, the palate has dark notes and bright, lively aromatics of red berries, cherries, melded with red florals. A whiff of a smoky note possessed the wine, unveiling meaty elements, savoury Kalamata olives and spices. The fruit is juicy and bright, supported by a dark chocolate rich tannin texture. Acidity is lively and balances, providing a lift to the smoky and mealy meat, olive elements. This is a moderately complex Tempranillo with red fruit and floral fragrance, smoky, meaty, savoury notes on a dark chocolate texture palate. Match with Brazillian meat roast and barbeque lamb over the next 3-5 years. 18+/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $20"

Winery note
"A velvety red wine that you’ll love. Aromatic dark chocolate and wild raspberry, with hints of cedar and char oak barrel influence. It is elegant and complex with a silky fruit sweetness and juice mid-palate finish. Spade Oak Temprañillo is hand crafted to complement rare beef, venison or anything from the barbeque. This beautiful Spanish red flourishes on the Poverty Bay Flats. Will get even more sensational over the next 6 years."
