2018 Hilmy The Temp

Texas wine have long been maligned, misunderstood and missed by many wine fans, but times are changing, and one that really turns heads is the latest Tempranillo wine from Hilmy, the 2018 “The Temp.”

Here’s a blend of Tempranillo, Barbera and Sangiovese that offers a nose of coco and black cherry fruit, that has been exquisitely made to be ready to go from the start, but has the backbone to age. 

Ripe red fruit, black spice, some taste of Texas dust, much like Rutherfod Dust, “The Temp” is a leading example of how great Texas wines are and is a perfect pairing with a charred rare Tomahawk steak, as it just starts out big and gets more elegant as the bottle gets drained.

That’s why, the 2018 Hilmy “The Temp” is today’s WineSiders Wine of The Day.
