750ml - Red Wine, Spanish Tempranillo

This multi-regional Spanish red wine was crafted by one of Majestic's favourite winemakers who was asked to forget all the rules of Spanish wine classification. It's a limitless wine. Grapes are picked from vineyards across Spain, instead of from one region, allowing the winemakers to pick and choose the very best grapes.

Guv'nor Tasting Notes by Wine Expert, David Andrews, DipWSET

This is a popular red wine made predominantly from Tempranillo, the grape behind Spanish success in the red wine market and almost certainly the grape you'll have drank if you've ever had a Rioja. It's probably most loved for its unbeatable smoothness even over its flavour: when I worked at Majestic I can think of numerous customers who were enamoured by the soft, mellow tannin. Then the flavours of juicy, dark fruits of bramble and blackcurrant, and a delicious vanilla streak on the finish will have your mouth watering for more. All in all, you’ll have found a bit of a unicorn if you come across someone who doesn't like this! The combination of rich flavours, intense fruit and a soft mouthfeel, make it a constant sell-out.
