Tempranillo is a red grape variety which forms the backbone of some of the finest wines from Spain and Portugal. Almost every red wine from Rioja and Ribera del Duero has Tempranillo at its core, and in Portugal, the variety is widely used in the Douro Valley – under the name Tinta Roriz – both for table wines and fortified wines (Port). Tempranillo vines have been successfully adopted in the New World, especially in California, Argentina and Australia.
The grapes are grown at a vineyard located on Baja Montana of Navarra at an altitude of between 400 and 700 meters above sea level. A continental Mediterranean Climate slightly cooled by winds coming off the Pyrenees. Hacienda Uvanis Garnacha has an aura of ruby with a spice and cedar aroma.

Hacienda Uvanis Tempranillo has a balanced taste, a long aftertaste. Good pairing with Braised pork, foie gras, pickled duck.
Food and Wine Pairing
Strongly flavoured meats such as beef and game (deer or goose) are always going to pair well with this wine. Rich and savoury meals as opposed to sweeter styles of cooking.
For Chinese style food, this wine would probably overpower Cantonese style foods but would work well with richer Zheijiang style cuisine or the Sichuan and Hunan styled cuisine.
- Chilli and Lime Cheddar has been blended with zingy lime juice as well as piquant chilli which leaves a long finish.
- Champagne Cheddar has the taste of sweet Champagne swirled into an already perfect mature Cheddar.
- Sharp Cheddar is an aged Cheddar cheese matured for at least 12 months. It is a well-rounded, delivering a mouth-watering, strong and full flavour on the palate.
- Wensleydale and Cranberry Cheese, we take plump cranberries and add them to the cheese creating a great, sweet and juicy cheese
