4.5 STARS 92/100 | 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: "Delightfully youthful and beautifully ripe, the fabulously expressed bouquet shows dark plum, blueberry, hazelnut and floral aromas with subtle warm spice complexity. The palate is succulent and fleshy, and delivers bright fruit intensity and silky texture, nicely framed by fine tannins. The wine is up front and fruity, and offers terrific drinking."
