Peter Lehmann Barossa Tempranillo 2006

Tempranillo is the main red grape of Rioja, so naturally it should grow well in the Australia's Barossa Valley, apparently. I've had a Peter Lehmann wine once before (a Shiraz) and thought it was pretty good, so I took their word for it and picked up a bottle of this from Waitrose.

Being from the Barossa Valley, it tastes like kind of what you'd expect it to taste like: a cross between a Shiraz and a Rioja. These Barossa wines are all about in-your-face fruit, and this doesn't disappoint. There is not much left over though, and you are left wondering if the wine could have had a bit more substance to it. Oh well, these types of wines are great for drinking on their own, so I'll leave them to it.
