SUPERDEAL | BRILLIANT BUYING FOR FANS OF PLUSH, JUICY SPANISH REDS.
GOLD MEDAL | Berliner Wein Trophy
GOLD MEDAL | Gilbert and Gaillard
The old adage that 'grenache delivers what pinot noir promises' is right on the money here. This lush blend of grenache and tempranillo from old vineyards surrounding the village of Carinena, brings generous layers of silky black and red fruits to the table, with lots of lovely spice notes adding interest and complexity. It's bright and fruit forward. It's opulent and rich. It's very, very friendly - a perfect option when friends call around and you want to open something affordable, that's cool and rewarding. Two Gold Medals in major international wine competitions confirms the hype. Sensational value.
Gilbert and Gaillard judges write "Beautiful dark ruby-red with bricking. Nose of stewed dark fruits with a lick of sweet spice. Fruit-forward at point of entry with touches of cardamom and silky, restrained tannins. Savoury peppery freshness on the finish. Serve with grilled foods."
