Product of Spain
Smooth, velvety Spanish red, with full-bodied flavours of black cherry, strawberry and vanilla spice lingering into a long, complex finish with subtle notes of tobacco and star anise. M&S Winemaker Sue Daniels is delighted to be working with local vigneron Marcelo Morales on this unmistakably Spanish wine, using Garnacha, Tempranillo and Cari?ena grapes. These varieties adapt wonderfully well to the extreme conditions of the Cari?ena region, where poor soils, baking hot sunshine and low rainfall force the vines into making smaller, super concentrated berries, packed with richness and flavour. Matured in oak and bottle, this delicious red is ready to drink now, but can be kept for up to five years if carefully cellared. Serve with roast lamb, cured meats, or full-flavoured hard cheeses. Like many high quality wines, Valdemadera has been made as naturally as possible to enhance flavour, so the bottom of the bottle may contain a small, harmless sediment.
