Great with Tapas type snacks
Wednesday, 14 April 2021  |  Paul

Not quite as smooth as I hoped so not really a "drink on its own" type wine for us. However, with a snack with a bit of spice, it goes nicely. We also found it needs to breathe or the nose is a bit overpowering.
Of course, this is totally our opinion, others may love it.
