Bodegas Contador

Benjamin Romeo 'Contador' Tempranillo 2008

Bright crimson in colour. Notes of Camphor and Sandalwood together with tarry red and black fruits. A rich flavoursome and savoury palate - medium to full bodied - a fleeting tobacco note. Firm yet silky tannins. Very polished. One of the best Tempranillos (actually 86% Tempranillo and 14% Garnacha) I’ve ever had - up there with Vega Sicilia. Shows the versatility of the Tempranillo grape and its suitability to the warm climes of Spain. One of the 1001 Wines. 98 points from Jay Miller of the Wine Advocate. — 9 days ago

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2019

A forest fragrance.

Starting to fall in love with the burgundy style. Cedar, slight spice, great fruit, a bit on the bolder side of the spectrum for the varietal.

Producer was recommended by the fella at USQ.
