This juicy red wine was served at the gala dinner of the Oscar film awards in 2013 and since then its popularity hasn't stopped growing. Yet this wine doesn't live on the strength of its fame and eye-catching label; its primary merit is its quality. An abundance of fruit, liquorice and light toastiness for an unbeatable price!

Rich deep flavours

This is the house wine at one of our favourite restaurants when we holiday in Andalucia. It’s a great value for money buy, quite robust with spicy cherry flavour.
