Zaranda

The third wine at a tasting for costawomen.com at Madrid & Darracott where the ladies were introduced to some wine regions outside of those usually served in the bars here. This red wine is from the Sierra of Seville but made with the classic Spanish grape, Tempranillo, which is more usually associated with the cooler Northern regions of Spain. Seville, on the other hand, is known for it’s blistering hot summers.

The wine has been aged in American and French oak for 9 months and is made organically.

It has the classic Temprnillo purple colour of medium intensity. An interesting scent with notes of acetone and eucalyptus along with the more usual fruit of the forest berries.

This is a nice easy young red wine with medium low tannins & acidity, and a light finish.

A good standard Tempranillo. Young and fruity, not particularly complex. It holds up well against it’s Northern brethren. I can’t believe this is from Seville.
