SPECTACULAR SPANISH TAKE ON CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE

$21.90... Chateauneuf is 2-3 times this!

Stunning 100-year old vine Spanish Grenache/Syrah/Mourvedre blend – @ $21.90 it is like paying for a Mini Clubman and being handed the keys to a Rolls Royce.

Papa Luna is a classic GSM blend similar to the legendary Chateauneuf du Pape reds of France. Crafted by Spanish winemaking genius Norrell Robertson MW from 70 to 100 year old organically managed bush vines... the concentration, balance and natural purity is SPECTACULAR for just $21.90/bottle. Like quality experienced in Chateauneuf du Pape would cost you 2-3 times $21.90... maybe more. I have stood in this heartland Spanish vineyard and marveled at the majesty of the ancient bush vines and arid red soils... they ooze character and excitement.

The wine...

Opulent black currant, vibrant florals, black cherry, smoke and raspberry greet your nose. The palate is rich, chocolatey, crammed with opulent sweet red and black fruits. The seductive sweetness is perfectly contrasted with subtle cured meat and crushed herbs deepening its complexity. Finely grained tannins and juicy acidity provide a composed platform to express its generous flavours perfectly. A big, spicy wine that will hum along until 2025+ and be perfect with your favourite BBQ meats or charcuterie.

Paying $21.90 for Papa Luna... is like paying for a mini and being handed the keys to a Rolls Royce! The experience and pleasure you will get from this old vine Spanish GSM red will immeasurably exceed any $21.90 red wine you have bought in the past... you’ll be drinking quality commensurate with a $50+ price tag. ENJOY, JEFF

Description

Norrel Robertson MW has become famous for his wines crafted from ancient vines out of the Spanish region of Calatayud. Central to his reputation in NZ has been Papa Luna, a full-bodied and exceptionally well priced GSM wine that takes its name from Pedro Martinez de Luna the famous Aragonese cardinal and anti-pope. It's deliciously Chateauneuf du Pape like in style and complexity, only hellishly cheaper!

Smells

Black currants, bright florals, black cherry, smoke and raspberry.

Tastes

Rich, chocolatey, crammed with opulent sweet red and black fruits. The seductive sweetness is perfectly contrasted with subtle cured meat and crushed herbs further enhancing its complexity.

Perfect with your favourite BBQ meats.
