Bunkers 2011 The Box Tempranillo

Looking for a red wine that is enjoyable, offers a point of difference and is affordable? Well, you won't go wrong with this fresh and lively young thing from Bunkers at Margaret River. Made from the Spanish grape variety tempranillo, it's a rich and generous red with plenty of flavour and some nutty oak - but its appeal lies in its balance. Yes there are some red berry characters. There's some spice, too, but this is a wine for drinking, not one for pontificating about. My guess is your bottle will pretty soon be empty without you having paid too much attention. Juicy, fruity and delicious, this is great value for $20.
