Llumí Negre 2016, Celler Alimara, Spain
This wonderful wine has been a revelation since it joined our guest wine range earlier this year. Part of the Llumí range from Cellar Alimara in Terra Alta, Spain, this wine is produced using fruit from the highest altitude vineyard in the region. All of the Llumí range have scooped medals at recent global award ceremonies. Hand-harvesting, controlled fermentations, and small batch production is carried out to ensure wines with great purity, focus and balance.
Produced using Syrah and Tempranillo collected from a 400m vineyard near Gandesa, Terra Alta. This beautifully crafted wine strikes a great balance between rich fruit and smoky spice. The nose is complex and enticing with notes of violets, coffee, strawberry, blackberry and cedar. The palate, whilst being broad and concentrated, is nimble and well balanced. Power and poise. A really great value wine, drink now or cellar for a few years.
