MUNDUS VINI GREAT INTERNATIONAL WINE AWARDS: BEST WINE PRODUCER IN EUROPE, 2010

Hand harvested and neither fined nor filtered this wine is bursting with primary red fruit and gamey notes. Ruby red in colour with violet tinges. The fragrance recalls small red fruit, with hints of liquorice and violet. The flavour is full and well-structured, with mild, well-integrated tannins. It pairs perfectly with flavourful first courses, roast meats, sausages and semi-aged cheeses.

Bodegas Fuentenarro, Ribera del Duero '4 Months in Barrels' × 2

 

Deep colour, classic nose of black fruits, rose petals, sweet spice, undergrowth.. The palate is luscious, full of ripe fruits such as cherry, blueberry, blackcurrant with touches of spice, ripe tannin and fresh acidity. Subtle oaked character but very drinkable. Drink with lechazo (slow roast suckling lamb) or failing that lamb chops.

'Medium deep colour. Blueberry and blackberry fruit, fragranced and fresh juicy, savoury. Dry, juicy, touch of vanilla and herbal scented oak, very moreish, grippy tannins, very well-balanced. Superb value for money.' Claire O'Boyle-Gallagher

Made with 100% Piquepoul Blanc, this crisp, clean, fruity wine has a lovely nose of white flowers and fresh fruit. Its aromas of green apple, citrus, pear and peach coupled with mineral and sea-influenced flavours hints are very pleasant and thirst quenching.
