4.5 STARS 90/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
TOTALLY DELICIOUS SPANISH RED AT AN UNBEATABLE PRICE.
The Elefanté range has captured the hearts of The Advintage Faithful and this is another Elefanté bargain coming from the preferred Castilla la Mancha region of Spain. We often say that Tempranillo is 'the blue jeans of wine' because it goes with everything and this perfectly pitched, beautifully presented example is sure to be your new favourite.
Vinted from a blend of Tempranillo (92%) and Garnacha (8%) this is the epitome of soft and rewarding Spanish red. It's a hearty but not heavy wine with soft mouthfilling richness and a lovely lingering palate of dark red fruits.
Sam Kim writes: "A brilliantly priced Spanish red, the fragrant bouquet shows dark plum, blueberry, mixed spice and toasted nut characters. The palate delivers lovely fruit richness and smooth texture, beautifully framed by supple tannins. The wine is immediate and friendly, and shows plenty of tasty flavours. At its best now to 2018."
