Ridgemill Estate 'Hungry Horse' Monastrell Tempranillo Garnacha 2012

A Spanish inspired blend of Monastrell, Tempranillo, Garnacha (1/3rd each) 

Opens with some meat and funk, black fruit, some floral lift perhaps; rather, fruits of the forest come to dominate. 

Easy going nature about the palate, fresh-as-you-like acidity to perk things up, fine rub of tannin. A little sweet spice in the mix too. A creep of flavour - in that slightly 'soif' style. 

I challenge you to refrain from simply refilling your glass. Often. 

Spiced salami and blue cheese pizza the go for this round our way. 89
