Some wines become firm Vino Fino favourites – this is one of them. From organically farmed, estate owned vineyards in Uclés, Castille, Spain, this is a vibrant and juicy, red wine with herbal, rosemary and liquorice notes with supple tannins. Youthful and un-oaked, it is showing great purity and fruit expression. And of course, like many Spanish wines, it offers incredible value.
"The Mesta was a powerful association of shepherds in Medieval Castile, controlling the routes for herding sheep across the country. Our vineyards are nestled deep in the heart of Castile and are still passed over by flocks on their annual migration – a symbol of our commitment to organic and sustainable viticulture. This is a vibrant and juicy, unoaked red wine, showing great purity of aromas with notes of black berries, rosemary and a touch of liquorice. Very versatile, medium-bodied wine, excellent with tapas, grilled meat, sausages and pasta."
91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"Modern, bright and immediately appealing, the wine shows sweet raspberry, blueberry compote, thyme and floral characters on the nose, leading to a succulent palate that is plump and fleshy. It is fruit forward and smooth to a lingering delectable finish, offering excellent value. At its best: now to 2022."
