Without further ado...here are the wines for this week;
- We are stating off with a red blend from Menfi in Sicily, the Mandrarossa 'Bonera'
Nero D'Avola/Cab Franc. Located in the heart of Menfi (Tom's been there...) the vines here have to deal with some SERIOUS heat giving some amazing dried fruit notes, kept fresh by much, much cooler nights.
- Next up is a another wine from a producer thats become an instant hit here at G2G, w've done their Silver Label and the Muscat, now its time for the Juan Gil Blue Label Monastrell from Jumilla in Spain. Earthy, spicy Monastrell offering a mouthful of black fruit and a tangy touch of balsamic.
- Finally...We finish on an intense boi!! The Federalist Bourbon Barrel Aged (BBA) Red Blend! Merlot and Cab Sav combine with the uniquely yank Zinfandel after 15 months in 35% new oak giving a potent plonk! Rich dark fruit, notes of butterscotch and vanilla, an unctuous mouthfeel and spicy finish! Cherry, Chocolate and Plum x
Serious wines, for (not very) serious folk...Should be an absolute spanker!!
