Made from 100% Monastrell (Mourvèdre) this red wine is the perfect option for early Autumn barbecues. Youthful and exuberant, it is ruby red in colour with juicy notes of blueberry, blackberry, and raspberry. Finishing with medium bodied tannins and a little spice, it packs plenty of punch!
2. Bodegas Exopto Rioja Bozeto de Exopto 2019
Bodegas Exopto is one of the new wave of modern winegrowers and quality wine makers in Rioja – Outstanding, well tended, cool vineyards on rocky soils, very old vines and low yields. The red 2019 Bozeto de Exopto is a blend of 50% Tempranillo from Ábalos with the Mediterranean touch of 40% Garnacha and 10% Graciano from Alfaro to add freshness. The grapes are nicely integrated and complement each other. A creamy, full-bodied red with plum and berry character. Nice purity of fruit to this. It’s full-bodied and layered with polish and beauty. Lovely tannins here. Drink or hold.
3. Matsu El Recio Tempranillo 2019
‘El Recio’ translates as ‘the tough guy’, and is a more serious, mature wine, made from the product of some of Toro’s oldest vines (90-100 years old), which are cultivated using advanced bio dynamic techniques. 14 months in new French oak provide opulence and polish. Intense and opaque, this wine is a mass of deep black fruit, chocolate, roasted coffee bean and vanilla pod aromas. Voluptuous and weighty, with a firm structure, held together by silky tannins.
