Luzon Tintorera 8 Meses

aboutImg

Luzon has always been a reliable name in affordable, delicious Spanish wines. We’ve been fortunate here at Surdyk’s to offer a wide variety of
their wines, all being great values and good representatives of their regions and grapes. The Tintorera caught my attention when it arrived on the shelf, as this varietal is rather special. The Tintorera Garnacha is one of only a small handful of grapes on the planet that has red colored flesh. In the glass, that means an almost completely opaque wine. The nose is highly perfumed with bright red berries, menthol, and spice – and I would be content to only smell this wine. But, thankfully, it’s also tasty, bringing a full-bodied dollop of dark fruit that turns to warm spiciness with a tug of tannin woven in. Aged for 8 months (“8 Meses“) in both French & American oak, it offers the perfect amount of toasty spice to the finish. I can’t help but think this is made for fall. Pair this with beef stew, chili, or braised short ribs.
