Availability: In stock
We're happy to present the new vintage of one of Spain's coolest red wines: Barbazul, the younger brother of the prestigious Taberner.
Made by the Huerta de Albalá winery in Cádiz, the southernmost province of Spain, this Spanish red wine is made basically from Syrah, complemented with Merlot, the indigenous Tintilla de Rota and a dollop of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Each variety was vinified separately in stainless steel tanks. After the completion of alcoholic fermentation, maceration and malolactic fermentation, Barbazul 2020 was blended and aged for over a period of 6 months in 3rd and 4th year French oak barrels from Allier.
Pleasant and elegant, this red wine from Cádiz is a great all-rounder.
The red wine Barbazul is medium ruby with some violet reflections.
This blend of Syrah, Merlot, Tintilla de Rota and Cabernet Sauvignon smells of ripe red fruit and flowers, nuanced by some creamy and spicy notions, such as vanilla, cocoa and cinnamon, plus a touch of herbs.
Fresh notes of raspberries, strawberries and blueberries, some hints of spices and ripe, yummy tannins. This red wine from bodega Huerta de Albalá has a gentle acidity, a velvety texture and a long, fruity finish.
