2018 Barahonda El Bicho Raro 750ML
Juicy and intense on the palate. Subtle notes of ageing and spices over a background of red fruits. Robust but smooth. Full-bodied, complex and unique wine. Organic certified, vegan and vegetarian.
Other Notes: "Bicho raro" means odd bug, most commonly used to refer to someone who is an oddball. The explanation behind this is: this wine has strayed from the path traced by Barahonda wines, mainly based on Monastrell. This wine is produced with 3 different grape varieties: Tintorrera, Syrah and Monastrell (10%) which is the least used grape.
Grape(s): Monastrell, Syrah
Serving Temperature: 15 - 17ºC
Pairing: Spicy, fatty dishes, sausages, parma ham, coffee and cocoa and hard, aged cheeses
