Review for the 2013 Tempranillo ...
The fruit for the The Invisible Man was sourced from La Rioja, sub-zone Rioja Alta, harvested by hand in the month of October from very old vines, planted on chalk and iron rich soils, the vineyards are located in the north-west near the village of Cuzcurrita de Rio Tiron. Rioja Alta mainly follows the south bank of the Ebro river and is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean, as well as altitude, rising to about 700m above sea level and centred on the town of Haro.
Fairley's Wines Tasting Note ...
The Tempranillo appears a youthful dark cherry red with violet hues in colour. The nose is aromatic, full of red fruit, especially plum, combined with vanilla and somewhat floral. The palate has excellent structure with fetching raspberry and strawberry fruit, sweet vanilla with cocoa, finishing medium bodied with a little spice and even more wild red fruit aromas. The Invisible Man needs to breathe, 1-2 hours and also is a bit young. Best served with chargrilled meats, red meat casseroles and even pasta dishes. Great potential but requires aging 1-3 years.
