Brisa de Verano Garnacha Tinta 2017

Brisa de Verano

A rich, ripe Spanish red, the Brisa de Verano offers up some of the best of bush vine garnacha for the price. The blackberry and cherry fruit is bright and full on flavour. The rich fruit character is freshened up with a good handful of sage. Some syrah adds that blackberry fruit, some purple highlights and extra dimension to the low yielding garnacha. The fuller fruit weight is further rounded out with shapely tannins. 

It is a winning combination and one that is an easy wine to enjoy a second glass of. Particularly, if you enjoy it with a mid week lasagne, or a burger with all the trimmings.
