Tempranillo is a red wine grape variety famous for some of the best wines in Spain and Portugal. Best Tempranillo red wines are found in the famous Spanish Rioja and Ribera del Duero wine regions. In Portugal, Tempranillo is generally used in Douro Valley to produce Port wines and table wines. Here it goes under the name of Tinta Roriz. Tempranillo is a good match for American oak. Its flavour profile perfectly integrates the vanilla and coconut notes from the American barrels.
