Cosechero Y Criadores Candidato Red 2016 75cl
Wines that offer a classical taste of the more traditional Spanish varieties: Tempranillo and Viura. History and know-how characterise this family of wines that remain faithful to the history and aromas of our homeland.
From Martinez Bujanda one of Spains foremost innovative winemaking families this is a fresh fruity wine made from the Tempranillo grape. It is more complex and structured than its lowly price suggests.
The wine is aged for 3 months in American oak barrels. It is intensely flavoured with aromas of black plums raisins and dates. The palate shows notes of vanilla mocha and cream with a mineral underlay and a hint of spice. An altogether delightful wine with plenty of fruit character, smooth and silky on the way in with pleasant tannins from both the grape and the oak.
The lengthy aftertaste again belies its affordable price.
