Hastwell & Lightfoot [McLaren Vale SA] Fat'n'Skinny , 'The Red Fury' Tempranillo Garnacha 2018

This traditionally Spanish blend of Tempranillo & Garnacha, released under the quirky Fat'n'Skinny label, curiously in clear bottles, pours with an attractive cherry hue.

The cherry and mixed spice high notes carry through the nose and palate, followed by a pleasant mid palate grip of almonds and textural dusky oak.

The 14% Alc component allows for a smooth glide and entices to yet another sip.
With only 250 cases produced, it should prove popular at cellar door and is definitely a blend worthy of rustic food matching.

Grilled meats and mushroom casseroles come to mind.
The Red Fury is a nod to La Furia Roja which made it to the 2010 FIFA World Cup
