I usually abstain on a Monday but somehow this ended up open yesterday. Perhaps I’m easily influenced !
Enjoyed with roasted red peppers, halved and semi-stuffed, with sobrasada* and tomatoes with some burrata on top to finish. The wine was a good match for the creamily robust flavours of the food.
Medium crimson colour. Deep red cherry and red berry aromas on the nose, nothing complex just lots of juicy, slightly savoury, fruit. Starts off fresh and bright on tasting with red cherry and raspberry flavours to the fore. With air, or perhaps it was the food, those flavours became softer, deeper and more rounded. Medium bodied, well balanced and with good weight of flavour it provided plenty of uncomplicated drinking pleasure.
*I hadn’t come across sobrasada until two weeks ago. If you haven’t heard of it before, like me, it’s a spreadable Mallorcan sausage similar in flavour to chorizo. I found it amongst the pate…
…and now can’t get enough of it. Thankfully a little goes a long way !
