Red Wine Barbazul 2017 Magnum
Red wine from Cádiz. Blend aged for 6 months in French oak barrels.
Availability: In stock
An irresistible Spanish red wine bearing the label Tierra de Cádiz, Barbazul Mágnum comes from Spain's southernmost province, one of the most charming, magical places in the country.
Like Taberner -the elder, more respectable brother of this wine- Barbazul is made from a judicious blend of grape varieties: Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and a touch of the indigenous Tintilla de Rota.
Each of the varieties was separately vinified in stainless steel tanks. After that, this red wine by the Huerta de Albalá winery was aged for 6 months in French oak barrels.
Bear in mind that this Barbazul 2017 Mágnum (1,5 litre-bottle) has a foreseeably longer ageing potential than the 0,75-litre bottle. Drink over the next 6 years.
Decant this red wine from Cádiz 30 minutes before drinking
The red wine Barbazul Mágnum has a medium, bright cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.
This red wine from Cádiz is fresh and exuberant. Juicy ripe fruit, aromas of vanilla, cinnamon and clove and, on the background, notions of aromatic herbs and balsam.
Savoury and pleasant, this Magnum red wine by the Huerta de Albalá winery has a remarkably fruity character, some mild tannins and a crisp, refreshing acidity. Medium finish with some spicy and toasted remembrances underscoring a fruit that is simply succulent.
