Suertes del Marqués 2016 El Ciruelo

Regular price £39
1 in stock

El Ciruelo gets its name from a 100 year old plum tree that grows alongside the vineyard. The vinyeard is Listán Negro interplanted with a small amount of Listán Blanco, and it makes a very fine, Burgundy-like wine with great freshness and a touch of spice.

Lightish ruby. The characteristic smokiness of these wines and this region is more muted here, the fruit a little more spicy. Dusty too. Super-fine tannins, paper-like and layered, very different from the El Chibirique. Lithe and scented and long. Good value.
