Producer: Familia Bastida
Bottle Size: 75cl
A comely nose of black cherry, plum, blackberry and stewed strawberry with dusty, smoky, vanilla-scented oak. The palate is packed with this sweet generous fruit but with a stoney acidity that makes it feel quite refreshing, and just the gentlest nibble of tannin on the finish.
A prime example of the incredible value Spain has to offer, Familia Bastida produce wine solely from vineyards on their Castilla La Mancha property. From old-vine estate fruit, the soil here consists of a mixture of clay and sand with a high concentration of rocky limestone. Grapes are harvested by hand and fermented with indigenous yeast.
