If you happen to be looking for no-nonsense, juicy, supple fruit, this ripe, velvety Merlot fits the bill. It’s from the sun-blessed hillside slopes of inland Valencia, where arid soils promote impressive intensity. A delicious, easy to drink red.
"Simply lovely, easy drinking. Was absolutely delicious just on its own. 5-Stars"
Online Review For the 2017 vintage
Over the last decade, Spain has proved itself an exciting place both to make wine and to buy it. There are so many tiny new wine regions to explore and new generation winemakers making the most of old vines and forgotten grapes. As the late great critic John Radford wrote, Spain is “more vibrant, happening and fascinating than it has ever been”. This modern Merlot is one of a new breed seducing wine drinkers with its easy drinking charm. It comes from the high vineyards of inland Valencia, where soils are poor (just what the vines need), while abundant sunshine and cool nights help the grapes retain freshness. This is a great bottle to enjoy anytime. Smooth enough to quaff solo, it’s also a fine match for kebabs or roasted vegetables.
