2009 Picante Espana “Gran Mesata” Tempranillo Shiraz. Vino Tinto. Spain. 14%

Unbelievably good value. What you would take to a BBQ and drink with pride. The Tempranillo gives this a nice structure and the Shiraz provides the body and sweetness.

Smokey bacon and red fruits. Hints of clove and star anise. Moderate length. At this price, a bargain. Good honest drinking.

Purchased at Swanbourne Cellars for approx $15

Tasted on 3rd September 2012

About Perth Wine Enthusiast

Casual observations of a Perth wine enthusiast. I am a recently turned 40 husband to a wonderful wife and father to 3 fantastic children. When work and family are not occupying me, my thoughts frequently turn towards two of my other passions in life, wine and food.
