Closure Type: Cork
Wine Style: Medium Bodied
TASTING NOTES: Medium depth, cherry–red with a ruby rim. The nose stands out for its strong expression of red fruit: raspberries, cranberries, red plums and mint underscored with notes of vanilla, caramel, cinnamon, liquorice and white pepper. Impressively fresh entry. Balanced, with good acidity, soft tannins and marked notes of red fruit. Good fruit expression and balsamic notes from the oak ensure a long, pleasant finish.
PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: Sausages, snacks, starters, hefty first courses and meats in general.
If you decide to go down the Spanish route of a more tomato based pork dish, with Chorizo and Morcilla (Spanish Blood Sausage) a classic lightly oaked Tempranillo would be perfect. A young Rioja such as this one from Torre de Ona is a match made in heaven.
