Insensato Garnacha

The final wine at the Madrid & Darracott summer winetasting and our only red wine if the night. Now most people would not associate red wine with a Madrid summer which is ferociously hot and dry. Usually you mix it with done ice and Lemonade to make tinto de verano. But this wine worked well with the heat.

It has the classic Spanish purple colour and is pale. A slight creamy caramel scent with cherry, plum and some peppery spice.

In taste it is a light dry wine with a short finish and low tannins/acidity. Super easy to drink and deliciously fruity. Perfect red for summer.
