4.5 STARS 90/100 | Sam Kim Wine Orbit
An instantly appealing, silky smooth blend and, oh Lordy, how we love it. This gorgeous regional blend captures everything we adore about modern Spanish winemaking and it's effortlessly smooth and supple charms have won the hearts of everyone we've sold it to. Fulsome and richly weighted, it's about as comforting and appealing as red wine in this price band can be. Watch as your friends swoon when they try it.
The Piqueras winery is in Almansa, in south-east Spain, some 40 miles from Alicante and the Mediterranean Sea.
Sam Kim writes "It’s attractively fruited and inviting on the nose showing black cherry, violet, thyme and roasted nut characters with a subtle spicy nuance. The palate displays lovely weight and succulent fruit intensity, beautifully supported by plump mouthfeel and silky tannins."
bursting with ripe rasberries
Full flavoured rasberries and boysenberries on the plate. Well concentrated. A little too sweet for my liking. Would go well with a chocolate cake or pudding.
