This rose is a cool €3.99 in Tesco.
A pleasant find – a dinner party guest bring – from South West Spain in the DO Ribera del Guadiana
This was a solid offering from Dunnes @ €7.50 and you can read the winemakers notes here:
Perfectly acceptable, fruity and smooth Spanish number, I would considering serving the next one chilled in this weather.
Oakey Tempranillo from Miguel Torres who produce consistently acceptable quality wines.
So perhaps a little more to do to bring it up to Torres benchmark.
Good article from the Independent Wine Review on the 2010 vintage here
I fried this on top of the radiator to get it up to operating temperature for the Wilks who were coming for a Bridge Dinner.So the first taste was warm with an explosion of fruit which soon gave way to a smoother refined dry taste. As the label says, it was as unique as the night sky in Ribera del Duoro. I’m a fan of Torres wines on both sides of the Atlantic but sometimes the hyperbole of the language used stretches the vine a bit.
€16.99 in O’Briens from €20.99
I though this average. Ribenaesque colour, Bland fruit, dry.
Perhaps I didn’t serve it warm enough.
