Love Not War Tempranillo (6pk)
|Categories for this Product:||
Region: La Mancha, Spain
Winemaker: Jorge Garcia Cuenca
Pack Size: 6 Bottle Pack
Summary: Castilla La Mancha: The vast, high and dry plains of Castilla la Mancha comprise over 50% of Spain’s vineyards. The ancient soils and high altitude ensures the richly flavoured fruit maintains structure and tannin. Vineyards planted on the slopes of mountain ranges in the north and north east add a degree of elegance to the wines.
Winemaking: Totally de-stemmed with a short cold soak before a long, cool fermentation with daily pump - overs to achieve optimum fruit and colour. The core of the blend was aged in stainless steel before six months maturation in seasoned French and American oak.
Vintage 2020: Vintage 2020 in Castilla La Mancha has been described as the best vintage of the past 10 years! The greatest challenge throughout the season was finding enough people to harvest due to the challenges that were faced with COVID 19. Ideal conditions throughout the growing period facilitated perfectly ripe and perfumed reds with balanced tannins.
Tasting Note: A lovely rendition of Tempranillo, bold purple fruits and fragrant floral aromatics. The palate is bright and expressive with a burst of mouth-filling ripe purple and red berries. Textbook varietal flavours of cherry cola and spice flood the palate before smooth tannins and subtle oak provide definition to the impressively long finish. Pair with a roast lamb and patatas bravas
