Apple, some animale, pepper and more spices on the nose. Palate is savoury with that same slightly odd apple influence. There is plenty of acid but it is really quite interesting with texture and spice as well. Good at the price it is.
A surprisingly big wine for the Mencía grape; at first it feels too bold and fruity, but the characteristic spiciness comes through to give the wine texture and subtlety. It definitely seems a wine that will age well. At only £8.99, very good value.
This is a great value quaffer for the mid-week quick dinner, and delvers great value. It's quite a young beast and has a bold and racy mouthfeel with a good mix of berry and tannin.
On the third day the little bit left in the bottle was quite developed and while affected by the air, it was still quite interesting and I'm pretty confident that this will age for a good while. The secondary characters were boiled root vegetables and the palette had softened, but still had a nice spicy finish.
