Gold Medal – New Zealand International Wine Show 2018

The popularity of this wine seems to never wane and this recently released 2017 continues the same consistent good quality and value that made it so popular in the first place. El Burro (The Donkey) is a big and ripe wine filled with rich fruit flavours and a nice warm spicy character. A little time in American oak adds a vanilla smoothness and a toasty, spicy touch to the vibrant, dark berry and chocolate flavours. Made by the flying Scotsman of winemakers, Norell Robertson MW from old, dry grown bush vine Garnacha (Grenache) grown in the Navarra region of North East Spain.

5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, September 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"This highly enjoyable wine is filled with dark plum and spiced cherry flavours with nuances of violet, almond and dark spice. The palate delivers excellent fruit intensity and weight, beautifully complemented by fleshy mouthfeel and smooth texture. It is mouthfilling and delectable with a lingering silky finish. A gorgeous expression of the variety. At its best: now to 2021."

Sue Courtney,, October 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"A full-flavoured Garnacha, showing ripe plum, dark cherry, warm spice and subtle chocolate notes, backed by juicy and rounded palate that’s delightfully smooth and sweetly tasty. Great value."
