Brambly nose with subtle spice and floral aromas. Crisp, refreshing Joven-styled palate with a juicy mid-palate, lighter body and a direct finish. it retains its fruit intensity with the dish - bright, upfront, easy-drinking

Vibrant deep crimson. Opens with dark strawberry and cedar and vanillin. Fresh, vibrant and plush with supple tannins and a core of dark strawberry carried to the finish. When paired with the pork the sweet strawberry fruit notes of the wine were highlighted.

Fresh fruit. Attractive. Pure and precise aromatics. Lovely. Savoury and dry palate. Nice moderate weight and balance. A well made wine. The pork dish makes the wine dry and hard.

Lifted red fruits, spice, vanilla-bean and savoury, cola aromas. The palate is a crisp chewy textural wine with good intensity and richness. Fine grained tannins, good flavour and balance. Slippery style. The pairing compliments the wine. The almonds promote the savoury flavours in the wine. The pork texture works well with the subtle tempranillo tannins. The juicy fruits of the wine buffer well against the gentle pork flavours.

Lovely juicy cherry, hint of cedar and leather, bright and fresh with a juicy acid structure, crunchy finish

Mid-deep ruby red. Quite intense red cherry and lick of vanilla nose. Rich fruit, sandy tannin. More primary fruit forward now. The weight of the wine works well with this dish and the red flavours meld with the meat.

Bright jubey aroma. Primary fruit driven slurpy palate. Works nicely based on red fruits, softness and length. With Food ? jube disappears and acid red fruits carry the wine well. Comes across as structured, solid and ripe. Very good. Slurpy still.
