Hither & Yon Grenache Mataro 2016

Nigh on pitch-perfect 60/40 blend of two listed players.

There's just something so wickedly, consistently, deliciously moreish about H&Y reds. This no exception, it extracts a juicy, jubey aromatic without straying too far towards confection. Call it an allure, call it what you will, inviting is what it is. 

Slipping around the palate with ease in its easy going, red fruited nature. There's more juicy red fruit, a slip of tannin providing an edge, a framework to carry. Mataro brings up the rear, it's bassy foundations adding length, substance, spice. 

91, almost go a point higher just for inherent smashability and, perhaps, just to rile the fun police.
