Gran Fontal vendimia seleccionada 2004

85 points

Castilla, Spain. 13.5%

Dark shiny modern wine. Stylistically like some Australian Shiraz with dark cherry fruit and a touch of American oak, short sharp tannic acid finish. Lacks character to lift it into the really fine class, but would be a popular wine above the normal commercial crowd. I can see why Australia sees Spain as a serious competitor and a rising one.
