80% Grenache 20% Mataro. Grenache has an equal or longer vine age of 70 years. The wine is primary fruit driven with redcurrants, raspberries and a sweet dash of spice. Palate is soft and elegant with low tannins and acidity. More akin to Pinot Noir in its palate structure. Lovely summer drinking red wine.

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
