Old Jarvie 'The Saviour' Tempranillo Garnacha Monastrell 2015

Second label from the Hither & Yon team, celebrating the region's maritime history and influence on viticulture. Packaging somewhat reminiscent of old portraiture.

Fruit overlaid with a sense of savoury: there's wood, spice and hints of cola. It's medium bodied, carries a soft, tangy herb tinged vibe with some loose tannin. 

That tannin gives a wash of herbs across the palate and giving some length. Enjoyable. 90 

Tasted on: Saturday 9th July, a Root day
