Greetings From CT Wine Authority!

We are proud to introduce a very special guest who will be visiting our Black Rock Wine & Spirits location on Friday January 8th!!  Roco Osborne from the famed Osborne family of Spain will be pouring samples of her new Tempra Tantrum line of wines. Stop by to taste the wine, hear about the winemaking process directly from  Roco, and even take home an autographed bottle!

Roc�o has most recently immersed herself in the process of winemaking for Tempra Tantrum. Her inherent passion for wine, combined with her personal views and innovative ideas about the wine industry, is evident in her approach. As a new generation vintner, Roc�o�s aim has been to create wines that are fresh, worldly and that reflect modern Spain, while building upon the quality that has made Osborne a success for over 230 years.

The wines, all 60/40 blends of Tempranillo and other varietals (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, and Grenache) are all grown about an hour north of Madrid in the heart of Spain in the Tierra de Castilla.
This region allows winemakers to craft unique wines without old world restrictions, similar to what Super Tuscans did for Italy.
The actual winery is a state of the art facility with computer and satellite monitoring of vine conditions, computerized watering of the vines, humidity sensors, a weather station, and computerized cap management control of fermenters to create the perfect level of flavor and tannins.

Tempra Tantrum Wines are produced by the Osborne Family who are one of the most famed winemaking families in Spain. Rocio Osborne is a 6th generation winemaker and makes Tempra Tantrum in a "Nuevo Vino" approach; where extra effort is put on the soft fruitiness of the grapes, while retaining the structure and complexity unique to the vineyards. In addition to her winemaking, Rocio is often on Facebook, YouTube, and her blog touting her products.

Rocio's Comments: The Cabernet brings structure and notes of bright raspberry, cherry and chocolate to the Tempranillo's plum and blackberry flavors, all balanced by a nice acidity. Fresh and lively, this is a chic, juicy blend worthy of patio sipping under the stars or enjoying with dinner.

Appellation: Tierra de Castilla, Spain
About an hour's drive from the vibrant modern capital of Madrid lies the warm valley of Tierra de Castilla in the heart of Spain. Located outside the bounds of the denominacion de origen system, Tierra de Castilla offers winemakers wthe freedom to experiment and craft stylish, modern wines unhindered by the traditional DO regulations. The grapes for Tempra Tantrum Tempranillo/Cabernet are grown on the Osborne family's estate in Malpica de Tajo.more

Rocio's Comments: This lush red excites the palate with warm, expressive flavors of chocolate, cherry and spice from the Shiraz, balanced by the Tempranillo's classic blackberry and plum notes. Bold yet nicely fruity with soft tannins and spice accents, this wine, to me, is very modern, very "now". more
