Winemaker's Notes

The Tryst red has been a unique (even eclectic) blend since first produced in 2001. In bringing together Adelaide Hills Cabernet sauvignon, Zinfandel and Tempranillo, Nepenthe is certainly not following any traditional blending rules.
"
The firm, densely colored and age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon is softened and lifted by the Zinfandel; while Tempranillo provides a backbone of savory tannins and flesh that ensures that the Tryst is a great food wine. It's fragrant and approachable now, but will go the distance, gaining complexity with time. Drink now, but will age up to five years.
"
Serve with rack of lamb, roast fillet of beef and pasta.
