Tempranillo La Mancha DOP Isla Oro 2019, Bodegas Isla
"Light and fruity wine with a Rioja feel, but not as heavy."
"My favourite weekday red wine."
Manuel Isla tends his 50 year old vines in the heart of La Mancha, on the south bank of the river Cigüela, 62m above sea level. The calcareous soil helps give the grapes their true expression of the terroir. Temperature controlled fermentation with no oak.
Deep, cherry red colour with an elegant floral, red berry nose and a well-balanced cherry and plum palate with savoury notes of fresh tobacco leaf and leather with rounded tannins leading to a soft, fruity finish.
