Running with Bulls Vermentino & Tempranillo

Running with Bulls Vermentino 2012

Beautifully thick in mouthfeel but with a lightness and vibrancy which is a mind bender of an experience. The entry of flavour is light before a huge richness kicks in on the mid-palate which fades on the finish. Vermentino has a huge future in Australia as this wine shows in spades. Even though I thought the quality of the Tempranillo was higher, I would grab this as the style of the wine is so unique.

Running with Bulls Tempranillo 2012

This wine possesses huge amounts of fruit flavours. The acidity of the wine is pretty good especially for this variety which might be an indication of the vintage. There is an element of smoked jubes but otherwise the wine is all gobs of fresh fruit flavour. What the wine lacks is structure but that is not surprising given the nature of this variety. Right from the get go this wine is highly drinkable!
