Tasty & slightly sultry #Alicante wine from @beanandhop in #Earlsfield #London. Perfect for Sunday night sausages!

This would have to be one of my favourite picks for #thetcwineclub to date. It's a wine that really impressed me from the first to very last sip. It comes from the Alicante region in Spain and is made from the Monastrell grape (the name Mourvèdre goes by in Spain). I loved this description on The Wine Gallery tasting note; 'Tragolago is a slang word meaning 'long drink'. It's a smashable, thirst-quenching red'. Hear hear!

We decided to team this moderately tannic wine up with some Great Southern, Plantagenet pork covered with spicy szechuan from Coles - perfect match!

Opaque garnet colour on the eye - I love these deep, dark looking reds - so sultry! It has a rather Old World rustic nose with notes of stewed plums, oak and farminess yet an air of freshness. It's super smooth on the palate with a lovely fruity character. Hints of cherry, red liquorice, plums and dark chocolate stood out for me. Lovely long finish too!

Huge berry and fruit taste up front. Enough acid to make it food friendly and some light tannins. Very impressed with the flavors of this wine. This is my first Monastrell varietal and I will definitely be looking for more!

One of the best young monastrell I had. Lovely fruit with tanginess and smooth tannins.

Not for me! Don’t know what this would go. good with! Funky taste is all I can say. Wait, I just figured out the funky flavor- green olives.
