Our Wine of the Month is Essencia di Fontana Tempranillo, UCLES, Spain as chosen by our resident wine expert Nick Gent from Rodney Densem Wines.
Nick explains. “this beautiful autumnal wine is from the small region UCLES, which lies North of La Mancha to the east of Madrid. It features intense aromas of ripe berry fruit and liquorice. Whilst being medium-bodied, it has beautiful balance between fruit concentration, fresh acidity and fine tannins.”
Enjoy a glass from £3.40 or share a bottle for £18.95.
The ideal dish to accompany this rich Tempranillo is another dish from our new menu: Herb Crusted Venison Haunch, creamed garlic wild mushrooms, parsnip, champ potato, chocolate oil and fig.
Nick comments “the combination of venison with the robust flavours of this wine are a match made in heaven. Delicious!”
