Sabor Real

VINTAGES#: 524496   SHOP 

The wines of Toro, Spain are generally bold and structured with masculine grip, and this one is no exception. Behind the ruby red colour, look for aromas of fresh red berries, spice tobacco and light hints of oak. Full and structured on the palate with dark, savoury, concentrated flavours and delicate sweetness on the finish.

"This is 100% Tempranillo, or 'tinto de toro', as they call it locally..., with a lifted nose of very ripe plum/prune fruit, woodsy notes and licorice. Impressive aromatic complexity... It's medium-full bodied, taut, and savoury, with a dusty, tannic finish. Very good length."

Lustau Los Arcos Amontillado Dry Sherry
VINTAGES#: 375097   SHOP 

Medium amber colour; the Lustau Los Arcos Amontillado Dry Sherry boasts aromas of dried plum, almond and caramel. On the palate, it is dry and medium-bodied, with flavours of salted almond, pecan, caramel and dates.

"Amber-coloured and very dry, Lustau's Los Arcos is marvellously complex and balanced, layered with notes of roasted almonds and hazelnuts, orange, honey and dried fruit. Splendid as an apéritif, it also matches beautifully with soups of all kinds as well as a plate of roasted nuts. If offers amazing value for a 750-ml bottle of Spanish fortified wine from a fine producer."
