In a nutshell: A bright, fruit focused, and great value, certified organic Spanish red.
The lowdown: An old school field blend whereby different grapes from different vineyards are all fermented and matured together, this wine then spent 2 months in French oak barrels to round the wine off. This blend is predominately Tempranillo and Syrah but also includes a small proportion of a number of others. A wonderful, vibrant deep purple colour with rich, ripe spicy and brambly fruit, rounded tannins and a lively finish.
When to drink: Surpisingly sophisticated and very drinkable this is a, pretty much, any occasion wine that won't disappoint.
