2016 Tinto - garnacha tinto, tempranillo, monastrell, cinq sao
"A Spanish inspired blend of Grenache (Granacha tinot), Tempranillo (Tempranillo), monastrell (Mataro) and Cinsault (Cinq-sao) for no other reason that the wine is so delicious, fragrant, delicate and I happened to be eating a pretty neat paella when I was writing the label.
Spanish food with lots of tomatoes, seafood and stuff.
Down it now or short term over the next few years.
