Overall a disappointing tasting for our experts, but of those that were praised Garnacha was the star offering delicate fresh cherry fruit and trouncing the tough, stewed Tempranillo. See the top-rated seven wines here...

Delicate, complex and subtle floral and strawberry aromas. The palate has power, offering a finish with various nuances of violet, fresh red berries and gentle oak. A light and elegant style.
