“The Tempranillo grapes were destemmed but not crushed. The wine was left on skins for 5 days after fermentation before being pressed to mature oak barrels. After Malo-lactic fermentation was complete the wine was racked and returned to barrel where it spent the next 10 months before being bottled.”
Once this was served at the correct temperature, it was very enjoyable. Was a touch warm when first opened which a quick 15 minutes in the ice sleeve fixed.
Medium bodied wine.
Blueberries, plums, bright juicy fruit profile up front, which transitions to an attractive dry, savoury finish. With flavours of fennel, tarragon and pomegranate adding interest.
Well balanced and very “smashable” wine with soul. Nice fine tannins. A good, solid, drink now wine. For the price, I think it offers great value. Bring to your next winter BBQ and share with pride.
