Passion for Spanish wine



La Raya 2018 Tinto

Palacio Quemado, Extremadura

This wine confirms how well Portuguese grape varities work in Extremadura in terms of producing fresher, expressive reds. It was fermented in concrete tanks and aged in 500-litres barrels and 5,000-litres foudres for 18 months. There's plenty of spiced fruit and some liqueur but it is not heavy at all. An energetic, pleasant medium-bodied red with a slight bitter note on the finish. 16.5 points
