When it comes to experimenting, pushing the boundaries and challenging the status quo, this wine does it all. The Wine Brothers affectionately call it the love child; a concoction conceived from the most unlikely and illegitimate marriage of varieties, that comes together to produce an absolute winner. A fabulous wine to challenge that know-it-all wine connoisseur.

FROM THE WINEMAKER

"Look for all of the attributes you have come to expect from Tempranillo, but also the unexpected as the other varieties modulate the character of the wine. We have selected parcels of Shiraz and Nero that complement the delicate fruit characters of the Tempranillo and are themselves bolstered by its textural aspects. The result is an intriguing and balanced wine that aims to get the best out of the three varietal components.

Densely layered perfume dominated by leather and cherries. Other more subtle notes shift in the glass as it opens up over time. The leather and cherries so evident in the aromatics follow through to the palate and are joined by masses of dark forest fruits, raspberry and rose. A fine texture throughout frames up all this punchy fruit, contributing to an elegant cherry finish. cters of the Tempranillo and are themselves bolstered by its textural aspects.

FOOD MATCH

Bistecca alla fiorentina, or perhaps some Argentinian carne; the Scoundrel loves the smoke and char of a great grill.

JC SCORE  8/10

Rough, yet very forgivable, the edges of youth will settle over time, this wine is offering al lot. Will open up nicely with a bit air - decant or crack the top a few hours before drinking.
