Spain’s juiciest Tempranillo, straight from the gnarly bush vines of La Mancha, with an additional splash of Syrah. These old vines withstand the searing summer heat to make this super-intense, Gold medal red full of berry fruit and spicy depth.
"Lovely, smooth red and organic too! Hope to buy this again as it’s just so soft and easy to enjoy"
Online Review For the 2016 vintage
In Spain’s sun-baked La Mancha, the same families have tended small plots of old bush vines for centuries. Usually no more than a few widely spaced rows, handed down from one generation to the next. But with locals swapping country life for the city, these are in danger of being abandoned. Bodega Fontana recognises the quality in these traditional Tempranillo vines and, as encouragement, the winemaker Tómas Buendía takes care to pay growers in the region a little more for their grapes. This way they will carry on nurturing the precious organic vineyards and keep the ancient wine culture alive. Full of rich cherry, plum and blueberry notes with an added dash of Syrah spice, this great value red is perfect for roast lamb or a summer barbecue.
