2018 PURO ROFE Tinto 75cl (Lanzarote, Spain)
Style - Vibrant
Grapes - Listan Negro
Tasting - If you like Cabernet Franc and want to try something different, then this is the wine for you. Very herbal on the nose backed up with white pepper and juicy wild strawberry. This wine is incredibly fresh with a slight salty backbone (in a nice way). It's got a right old stinky scent at first so watch out for the scent of asphalt and burnt fern. Give it good shake to wake it up a bit and the purity of the fruit will sing out in your mouth. Always nicer given a chill for half an hour before drinking too.
FYI: Google image search 'vineyards in Lanzarote'. You'll be amazed, and think that wine is being made on the moon. Each vine is dug in a basin to protect from the wind and collect rain water.
