Standish Wine Co, El Standito Proyecto Garnacha Tintorera 2008
Well, this is interesting! Standish Wine Co. making wine in Spain. The region Yecla is known for Monstrell wines but also making Garnacha Tintorera, or more fondly known in Australia as Alicante Bouschet. This Garnacha Tintorera already has a good 13 years on it, it’s singing wonderfully and will continue to age as well. Rich, decadent, balanced, lots of fruit, savoury notes of leather, spice, cured meats, and acidity to match the layered tannins. Great to see Dan making great wines in any part of the world he can get access to grapes.
