The cierzo is a dry, cool wind that blows through this ancient Spanish wine region, helping to create an optimal environment for cultivating grapes — something the Phoenicians began doing in the 11th century BC. The wind's cooling influence extends the grapes' hang time, producing plump, ripe fruit that yields remarkable wines such as this Tempranillo. Flavors of red cherry and plum are revealed on the palate, lifted by citrus notes and savory nuances of licorice. For a classic pairing, enjoy this beauty with a meat-studded paella.
Our Cierzo Tempranillo is sourced from vineyards in Southeast Spain using traditional winemaking methods to obtain the most fruit character and freshness of the grape.
