I had the pleasure of walking and then having lunch in this vineyard on my visit to this winery some years ago now and have always loved their wines, despite not always listing them here in our shop. However, we came across this at a recent tasting… and it is on fire!
Wonderful aromatics of warmth spicy earthy darks fruits interwoven with the right amount of oak. It is Autumn in a glass and needs a lovely shoulder or leg of Welsh lamb to pair it with.
The Tempranillo and Graciano grapes are sourced from La Pasada Vineyard, at 700-800m altitude. The wine spends 36 months in a mixture of American and French oak, and 24 months in bottle prior to release. 13.5% vol.
