2018 TELMO RODRIGUEZ Al Muvedre 75cl (Alicante, Spain)
Style - Bold
Grapes - 100% Mourvedre
Tasting - One of those ever reliable, fine wines that cost way less than they ought to. Hand made throughout. Mourvedre (called Monastrell here) is a burly grape that thrives in the dry warmth of Alicante. Telmo is a genius so little wonder this is so darn good.
FYI - Mourvedre is the least well know of the classic Rhone blend trio of grapes. The other two being Syrah and Grenache.
ABV - 14%
