Steering clear of the sugar drenched concoctions from certain New World circles I decided to head to Spain for my entry. I posted tasting notes on Five Spanish Rosés earlier in the month, this is the sixth wine.
Available from Decanter Wines for £6.50.
Bodega Fari - a is the largest family owned estate in Toro with a great reputation for the 'explosive aromas' (Robert Parker) in their wines. This is 100% Tinta de Torro (aka Tempranillo) wines that is unsullied by any oak thus retaining its vibrant, fresh, colour, aroma and taste. Inviting deep, cherry colour. Ripe strawberry and cream aromas with cherry and citrus adding complexity on the palate. Dry. 12.5% alcohol.
Scribblings Rating - 90/100
"Refreshing fruity flavours, this wine is best served chilled at around 9-12�C. Drink this wine in the next 12-18 months to enjoy it at its best. Lovely on its own, but goes well with salads and baked salmon and trout."
