Viendo Sotes Bodega Sierra Norte 2005

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

We have been quite quiet at Find Wine for a few months. If truth be told we have been spending a great deal of time in a volcano plotting world domination…although more information about that in the coming few weeks! Also I promise to get back in the habit of writing this blog!! Honest!

However fortunately our trusted and esteemed in house wine critic has been beavering away tasting wines on your behalf . I don’t know how he does it. He has found something he rather likes! Here is what he has to say…

Well what a little ripsnorter of a wine this is. This is everything I love from a good Spanish red, mainly subtle oak and bright and vibrant fruit notes (in this case cherry and plum). With a slight hint of cardamom on the nose this is all very pleasant.

There’s a real freshness to this wine which, given it’s a 2005, is quite impressive. Frankly the first glass vanished and if it hadn’t been a Monday night I’d have topped up a second pronto. This is a refreshing red with a good streak of acidity.

I drank this wine in total ignorance of the price for which it sells on Find Wine. When I later looked and found out it was only £7.99 I was beyond pleasantly surprised. What a bargainous wine this is. I suggest you top up. This is a perfect “not sure if we’re now in summer or autumn” wine…..
