Idiom ‘I’ – Iberico Blend 2016

R396.00

In Stock

An elegant, medium-bodied Grenache-led blend. Dark and broody on the nose with savoury, meaty notes and hints of tar and liquorice. Red cherry and an iron-rich minerality (derived form clay and granite rich soils) dominate the palate. A wine with rolling red and black notes and a long, lingering finish.

Garnacha (57%), Carinena (24%), Tempranillo (10%), Monastrell (9%)
