Member Review:

Had this tonight as the third wine of the evening, following a prosecco and a younger sister from the same winery that was a blend of syrah and tempranillo. Food was tapas style, starting with grilled and butter-sauteed scallops with the prosecco, followed by roast chicken, grilled home-made pork sausage, yakitori-style duck, shiitake, zucchini and onion, and some sauteed turnips in garlic with the reds. This wine was deeper, rounder and a more serious offering than the syrah-tempranillo younger sibling. It spoke more of cabernet than tempranillo, but there was an underlying element in the blend that kept the cab from spreading its wings as much as it might have. Good nose of cab and cassis, soft tannins, mild acidity and medium finish. A fine enough wine with the grilled meats and other tapas, and for everyday drinking.

Perfect white wine, fresh and fruity. Combination of parellada and muscat. Excellent value for money
