Availability: In stock
An irresistible Spanish red wine marketed under the Tierra de Cádiz designation of origin, Barbazul Magnum comes from Spain's southernmost province, one of the most charming, magical places in the country.
Like Taberner -the elder brother of this wine- this red wine from the Huerta de Albalá winery 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, Barbazul 2018 Magnum (1,5 litre-bottle) was aged for 6 months in French oak barrels.
Bear in mind that this has a foreseeably longer ageing potential than the 0,75-litre bottle.
Aerate this red wine from Cádiz 30 minutes before drinking
The red wine Barbazul Mágnum is medium purple with a violet rim.
This blend of Tintilla de Rota, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot 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 wine from the Huerta de Albalá winery is fruit-driven, with mild tannins and a crisp, refreshing acidity. Medium finish with some spicy and toasted remembrances underscoring a fruit that is simply succulent.
