Description

Spain is the new kid on the block in terms of offering exciting wines from old vines, dry farmed, incredible value for money especially relative to price, wines for everyday drinking and special occasions. It’s becoming my number one go to country. And this Piqueras VS (Very Special) highlights this exact point, Monastrell and Garnacha, 100-year, pre-Phylloxera vines for an incredible price. Now a second time release in NZ and it is a showstopper, thanks to a new winemaker at the estate and the stellar 2016 vintage. It’s worth every penny.

Smells

smoky, dark chocolate, baking spices and dark plums aromas with alluring red fruits that titillates your nostrils. A superb combo of dark and brooding yet with freshness.

Tastes

the colour, the depth, the concentration are all consistent with tiny crop levels inherent to old vines. Baked strawberries, chocolate, coffee grind flavours, interwoven with brown spices, toasty vanilla, and smoky nuances. Generous fruit on the palate with savoury complexity, smooth mouthcoating tannins and a long finish that has freshness. A serious wine, worthy of serious attention. Treat your friends to a special meal, fillet steak and this, they will love you for it. Rest assured this will cellar for 8-10 years or more but delicious drinking now as well.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.

Quite simply, the best bottle of Spanish red I've ordered from FWD since their outstanding 2015 Piqueras VS last year. Worth every cent, if you like big, bold, rich reds like me !!
