The fabulous Castell de Les Pinyeres from Celler El Masroig in Navarra, Spain. The dryness of summer, the poor fertility of the terrain, the mountainous landscape and the Mediterranean climate are all key influences. And from this comes a rich deep wine that pleases the palate no end with dark fruit and bitter chocolate.
A wine of intense colour, with chocolate, spice and some cedar notes on the nose. The palate is well balanced between silky smooth and intense with a strong fruity presence. 40% Garnacha, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and the remainder Merlot and Tempranillo. Depth and complexity results from its oak aging.
