100% TEMPRANILLO. RATED 91/100
This big, Spanish red is made from 100% Tempranillo grapes, and is an absolute steal under $15!
The winery Navarro López Bodegas was established in 1904 in Valdepenas, Spain. In 1988, after many successive family generations, the current president, Navarro Doroteo Donado, bought the business because he was so impressed with the outstanding wines and considerable growth opportunities abroad. The winery now focuses on quality aged wines, from single grape varieties.
Rated 91/100 by Sam Kim (www.wineorbit.co.nz), this delcious Tempranillo simply over delivers on quality & flavour for the price. Sam describes the wine "attractively fruited and fragrant. The bouquet shows dark plum, spiced cherry, game, toasted almond and mushroom characters. The palate is ripe and rounded with delectable fruit flavours backed by silky texture and polished tannins, leading to a lengthy smooth finish". The wine will age well for another few years, and is best matched with cheeses, Spanish tapas, cold meats & appetizers.
Don't miss out on the biggest, richest, full bodied red we have available this summer!
