Here is another mind-blowing bargain brought into New Zealand by gifted importer, Stephen Bennett MW. Presented in heavyweight glass and looking like a million dollars on the table, this is very impressive, full-bodied red wine that smells seductively of ripe dark fruit with a beautiful oak touch. The palate is sensational - round and full but also with a mild spiciness and light smokiness from the barrel maturation. If you're in the market for a dark, silky-smooth expression of blended Spanish red, we can't recommend Piqueras 'VS' highly enough.
The winery writes "Full red with a shade of brown, aromatic with nuances of coconut, toasted oak and notes of ripe black fruit. The full and round taste is persistent with soft tannins and a spicy aroma in the aftertaste".
