Last night we had The Society’s Southern Spanish Red 2019. I’d bought it in 2021 and not opened it because there always seemed to be something more attractive.
It has a really naff label and name and guess what? It was lovely. Full of depth and flavour, a Monastrell (aka Mourvèdre) varietal from Jumilla. Was it so good because it had more bottle age?
Will never know but I’m going to get more and keep them. Of course I can’t get 2019 now, TWS has the 2022 with a new label and grape variety instead of ‘red’. But the price hasn’t changed too much.
