Candea Tinto 2016
£9.25 (Inc. VAT bot. 75 cl.) / Spain
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The red 2016 Candea Tinto is an easy-drinking, unoaked and fruit-driven blend of multiple grape varieties—Mencía, Arauxa, Garnacha Tintorera and Mouratón—from different vineyards in the village of Tamagos plus a little bit of Alicante Bouschet and Mouratón from 70-year-old vines. It fermented with one-third full clusters and indigenous yeasts and was kept in stainless steel for one year before it was bottled. This is much better than the 2015—sharper, more focused, more austere. It's still young and undeveloped, but it's serious while at the same time easy to drink. Truly outstanding for the price. 12,000 bottles and 600 magnums produced. It was bottled in January 2019.
