Running With Bulls Garnacha 2015
The good folk at Yalumba are sticking with the Spanish theme for the Running With Bulls label hence the use Garnache.
Made in the 'Joven' style - no oak, this is ready for immediate enjoyment. Dirt and red fruit straight up, it looks quite light in the glass. It's light in the mouth too. There's a good dash of savoury herbs and peppery spice in the mix and blood orange type characters sit on the flank. Some textural appeal adds another dimension courtesy of a small amount of whole bunch fermentation. But it's the juicy red fruits that steal the show for me. Digging a little deeper I discovered there's a dollop of Tempranillo (4%) in there too.
Incredibly food friendly, I could drink this easily without food to be honest.
Keep an eye out, you'll be able to track it down for just under $20 I reckon.
