El Valiente 2020 Organic Tempranillo


It is a mystery to me why Australians do not drink more wines from Spain and Portugal, given they offer terrific value and are very compatible with Australian cuisine. This organic tempranillo (the main grape in the red wines of Rioja) is part of the Elefante range imported by Fourth Wave Wines and has some medium-bodied fruit with a dry finish. It combines brightness and savoury notes. The bullfighting theme might not be to everyone's taste, but the $15 price tag is a definite winner and the wine can be found for even less on special. Pair with a chorizo dish for maximum pleasure.
