Passion for Spanish wine



Castillo de Belarfonso 2014 Tinto

Canopy, Méntrida

This is one of my favorite labels. It laughs at the pompousness which is sometimes found in the wine world by depicting a bouncy castle on the label. Great value and a perfect introduction to Gredos’ Garnacha. It comes from 50 to 70 year-old vines planted in El Real de San Vicente (Toledo). Medium-light ruby colour. Red fruit (pomegranate), herbs and sweet spices (cinnamon). Lively and savory palate with kirsch and earthy, yet well wrapped-up tannins. Terroir and purity at an affordable price. 15.5 points
