Food Pairings for Abacela Tempranillo Umpqua Valley Umpqua Cuvée
The key to producing our Tempranillo Umpqua Cuvee is exacting control of the fermentation to achieve the proper level of fruit expression without excessive tannin extraction. This is by no means an easy task, but our experience has enabled us to consistently produce a fruit forward, balanced, earlier maturing wine that does not require cellaring. By using individual vineyard blocks of specific clonal selections we highlight Tempranillo’s inherent red, blue and black fruit with tobacco, pepper, and spice hints. While delicious now it will improve over the next three years. Try this wine with simple, flavorful foods like roasted garlic spread and balsamic crostini or even salted almonds and manchgo.
