This is a charming sparkler at a great price. It presents a nose of new leather and honey with a floral grace note. Creamy mouthfeel, medium-bodied, dry, elegant and well balanced.
Ripe, sweet raspberry and candied cherries rule this simple, easy blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon from Vino de la Tierra de Castilla. A touch of sweet oak supports the juicy fruit, providing enough structure to partner with grilled burgers. Crack and drink this great-value wine now.
Tempranillo, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon from DO La Mancha fill out this smooth, full blend, redolent with sun-baked black fruits, liquorice, pipe tobacco and sweet spice, and built on 6 months in American and French oak. Tannins are supple, dusky and downy textured through the pencil-laden, drying finish. Some interesting detailing here, and worth adding into your mid-week rotation, especially with grilled sausages.
Made from 100% Tempranillo and aged 12 months in a combination of American and French, of which a portion was new. Strawberry, raspberry, plum, cedar, coconut, vanilla and tomato concentrate are all in play. Fine length with suave tannins. Lamb chops are the way to go with this wine.
A blend of Garnacha and Cariñena from 80- to 100-year-old vines. Dense purple colour; creamy blackberry nose with vanilla oak; full-bodied, rich plum and raisin flavours with balancing acidity; firmly structured and lingering with a coffee-bean note on the finish. Chunky mouthfeel.
Limited edition. Made from Viura and Malavasia grapes fermented in new French barriques, this wine offers intense yellow fruit and mellow, oaky vanilla aromas. Equally concentrated flavours in the mouth pick up leaner green fruit notes, with a trace of lime and focused acidity, finishing very dry but with a contrasting splash of vanilla.
This ripe, punchy and fruity Verdejo is pierced by a herbal lime pith. Peach, pineapple rind, tangerine, green apple and melon move briskly on the palate, swept along with a broom of scrubby herbs and spicy saffron. Great value for a taste of the Mediterranean. Seafood paella, here's your match.
