Hastwell and Lightfoot Fat ‘n Skinny ‘The Red Fury’ Tempranillo Garnacha 2018

Cherry and Plum vibes here, feels a touch cooler - with an associated freshness - than McLaren Vale fruit often conveys. 

The palate is succulent, fresh, yet with a generous rasp of tannin that adds body and conviction. 

A cracking pairing with food, it's versatile - think beyond pasta (although that's where it worked for me) and pizza - the tannins a match for many proteins. 

Perhaps even consider traversing the Pyrenees - from Spain, where its component varieties originally hail - and think about something like Cassoulet. Particularly in these immediate cooler months. 90
