Fergal Tynan and Giles Cooke work with farmers in Cuenca, Spain, who grow grapes much as they have done for centuries – cultivating old, low-yielding bush vines on sandy chalk soils in a hot dry climate. These seasoned vignerons have never used, nor needed, chemicals. Crafted with Tempranillo (80%) and Syrah, their 2018 Tinto is a succulent, juicy red wine stippled with ripe strawberries and blackcurrants, with a warming spicy finish that feels like a mouth hug. A generous keeps-on-giving texture clads your palate, etched with rustic tannin. Luscious, rugged and honest, this is a wine for any occasion. Close your eyes and let it transport you to the sun-drenched heart of the Spanish peninsula.
