One of the Lea & Sandeman wags noted a ‘whiff of Eccles cakes’ in their tasting notes for this wine and they are absolutely spot on! I noted sour cherries and liquidised raspberries, but it is that Eccles cake tone which I have latched onto and I will never let it go. This Monastrell (Mourvèdre) is a cracker and it is a wine which only sees a brief two months in American oak. It is a seamless glugger for when you want to concentrate on the game on the box more than the wine in your glass. I love it.
