Rubus 2019

Currently spending a few days in Teruel and thought I’d try the local wines. This one from Rubielos de Mora is an artesan wine made from Garnacha and Tempranillo, the a Spanish classics.

It has the purple colour I expect of Spanish reds and a medium scent which is a bit astringent on the nose to start with followed by the red and dark berry scents you’d associate with these two grapes.

A young wine that’s light on the palate. It tastes better than expected with underlying berry flavours. It is quite dry: the tannins and acidity could do with some balancing.

Overall an OK table wine: drinkable but nothing to get excited about.
