Marsden Bay of Islands Tempranillo (2020)

The 2020 vintage (4.5*) is an elegant, ageworthy Northland red, matured for a year in French oak barriques (30 per cent new). Full-coloured and fragrant, it is mouthfilling, with youthful, berryish, spicy flavours, very fresh, ripe and strong, savoury notes adding complexity, and obvious potential. Best drinking 2024+.
