Spanish Tempranillo Blend
RRP - £31.00 - you save £4.05
Refined aromas of plums, blueberries and redcurrants that led to a bed of spices, flowers, and balsamic touches, so distinctive of the Ygay Estate. Succulent, round and well-balanced in the mouth. A muscular wine with great potential. Aged for 21 months in American oak barrels.
Established in 1852, Murrieta is one of the oldest and most respected bodegas in Rioja Alta. Their wines are concentrated and long-lived and some, like “Castillo Ygay”, have become legendary amongst wine-lovers.
Ideal with grilled and baked scallop with red wine sauce and truffled liquid potato; twice-cooked Seabass, sweet onion, apple, and foie mousse and fine velouté; roast breast of Mallard duck, crispy potato, and borage flower; soft cow's milk cheese and truffled Brie.
