Tasting: Valdemuz has an intense purple color with purple borders that announce its youth despite its 18 months of aging. First of all it is a very elegant wine. Complex, with fruity aromas of red plum, blackberry, compote, and slight coffee memories thanks to its months of aging. Mineral notes also appear. The palate is very fresh, with lots of fruit, with an excellent balance of acidity. Wine structured with tamed tannins, which provide a pleasant final bitterness that reminds us of licorice. In the end it is a balanced and persistent wine in the mouth with a retronasal that invites us to drink more. € 28

Pairing: A wine suitable for succulent dishes. Ideal for stews, stews, meats, both white and red, game, blue fish, octopus, fish stew, legumes. In our case it was paired with beans with partridge, and cod “ajo arriero” style; a perfect combination.
