Joe’s Judgements

This is a fabulous expression of Spanish Garnacha from one of the Rioja region’s oldest producers. Bodega Martinez Campeador Garnacha has vibrant blood orange in the attack, with cherry and raspberry making an appearance, followed by spicy aromas, of anise and pepper. After a while notes of black fruits, prunes and notes of fig appears as the wine aerates. The palate is elegant and complex with more fantastic spices coming through, and a silky but structured tannin element to it.

Awesome with Ham, sausages and charcuterie meats. Rustic tomato based stews and of course, lamb in its many forms.
