The Oddbins Take

With its label's 'poulet-au-paisley' motif rightly predicting the sort of conspicuous and colourful happenings about to hit your palate via this lovely bottle of red, the tone is set for one of the most exciting new Spanish wine regions making the listings.This is a wonderfully soft and harmonious red, with a low-tannin feel and a soft savoury note riding on the finish. Made from locally certified organically grown grapes. An absolute must try.

All their wines are certified organic.

This Tempranillo comes from higher elevation vineyards of clay and limestone, inland from Valencia. To the eye it is a dense, dark ruby hue and the nose is fragrant, with luscious raspberry and ripe blueberry fruits. On to the palate and the taste is fruity, rich complex with ripe flavours and a long, pleasant aftertaste with hints of strawberry jam. It would be ideal with smoky meats such as barbecued lamb chops.
