Expert Reviews

Lifted violet florality on the aroma, partnered with rich, gamey berryfruit and spice. The oak is so well balanced and hardly noticeable in the background as the full, ripe, complex fleshiness of this wine gives way to a fine mix of acid and tannin on the finish. A wine to keep, but extraordinary now with red meat. M. Brajkovich MW

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Tempranillo typically shows very attractive brambly, blackberry-like ripe fruits along with spicy and exotic complexity.

Palate

The palate is rich and textural with salivating soft tannins. Licorice and chocolate flavours linger on the finish.

Cellaring

This wine will age extremely well for at least five years but equally can be drunk in its youth.

Food Matching

Red meat or pork would be an ideal match along with traditional Tapas style dishes.
