Juicy & Smoky
A special collaboration between Lionel Osmin and the Basque & ex-rugby player Imanol Harinordoquy, Encierro celebrates the spirit of the traditions from Euskal Herria, a region in northern Spain and the South-West of France where the Basque people have lived for centuries.
Encierro is made from organic Tempranillo grapes grown in La Mancha region, just south of Madrid, where the landscape is shaped by vineyards, olive trees and the windmills that Don Quixote used to mistake for giants.
Fresh and low in alcohol (12%!), this Spanish wine has fruity aromas of blackberry, beautiful floral notes and a special smoky character. Easy-drinking, light bodied and with an extremely juicy palate. A wine to enjoy on its own or to pair with Spanish tapas: potatoes and onion omelette, roasted garlicky bread with fresh tomato and cheese and charcuterie boards.
