mocha finish. Perfect with steak!!
Finca Libertad 2015
Castilla, Spain 14% abv
Cabernet is the latest trend in Spain. It ripens beautifully in
the sunshine, producing intense flavours. Packed with ripe
redcurrant and cherry fruit, this fresh 2017 is from Castilla,
where arid vineyards emphasise that delicious intensity.
It's an ideal match with grilled meats and perfect at with
