30 Wishes Tempranillo by Neleman (Spain) (Level of overall body, acidity, profile and strength - 4/5)
There’s always a reason to wish someone you love a bloody good wine. That’s why we came up with 30 Wishes. An organic wine you can turn into an original gift by customizing it the way you want. Maybe because you wish someone a happy Hanukkah, a happy new home, or just a good wine on a Saturday night. So whatever day it is, it’s always a perfect day for 30 Wishes.
A ruby, violet wine. Pleasant and floral with spicy hints and a fragrant fruity background. Goes well with light to medium meals, soups, braised meat and noodles. This Tempranillo from Valencia is deliciously spicy and full of red fruit. Neleman selected the best Tempranillo grapes from 3 different plots. This organic wine tastes delicious with dishes that are not too heavy, for example pasta with red sauce or just delicious during a drink.
