Podcast #41 – Closeup on Tempranillo and La Frenz Tempranillo 2008

Tempranillo, the red grape from Spain is making inroads in wine countries around the world. BC has a few believers in this varietal and we’ll mention them all in this varietal Closeup edition of our podcast. BC tempranillos tend to be reasonably priced and over-deliver in terms of taste and complexity. It shows lots of promise in the Okanagan Valley and is a variety to watch for in the future.
