BODEGAS CARLOS PLAZA – EXTREMADURA – SPANIEN

Zur Abwechslung gab es mal eine Indoor-Weinverkostung. Rotwein und winterliche Temperaturen Outdoor passen meiner Meinung nach einfach nicht zusammen.

Die neue Jahreszeit steht schon vor der Tür! Noch dazu kann ein spanischer Wein dabei helfen, die Frühlingsgefühle zu verstärken.

CARLOS PLAZA SELECCIÓN 2013

Region: I.G.P. Vino de la Tierra de Extremadura.
Grape Composition: Blend of Tempranillo 70%, Syrah 15% and Merlot 15%.
Ageing: 6 months in French and American oak barrels.
Alcoholic Degree: 13.5%
Soil: Reddish Clay
Tasting notes:
Carlos Plaza shows an intense cherry color with purple and garnet hints. Medium-body, clean and shinning.
Intense and elegant nose. First, aromas of quite mature red fruits. Afterwards, you can notice the subtle aromas provided by the stay in the barrel. Vanilla, cacao and some toasted and spicy hints. Rich in aromas partly due to the use of the two different barrels.
Nice and amiable entry in the mouth. Well-balanced, soft, ripe tannins and delicious notes of liquorice and coffee liquor. Good persistence. It invites to keep on drinking.
Recommendation of food pairing: It matches perfectly with tapas or antipasto.
It pairs perfectly with any meat and barbecue dishes, as well as with lighter dishes such as tapas or antipasto, pasta, pizzas. Very nice with fish and chips, or stir-fried vegetables, among many others.
Try with chocolate.
Recommended service temperature: 14-16º.
