#TNG Blog 4 – Simon’s Wine of Year
BODEGAS LA MILAGROSA Milcampos Tempranillo
Ribera del Duero, Spain
” I was hooked”
Tasted in the depths of Winter in The MayFair Hotel, the room was awash with wines and all I had to do was find the star sitting quietly waiting to be discovered. A table of Spanish wine yielded the result I was looking for.
Having chatting in my pigeon Spanish with Javier, I began to taste and mid way along the table was this Tempranillo. I was immediately hit by its intense perfumed nose, enticing and alcoholic. The palate was immediate, blueberry fruits, oak power and the most beautiful silky texture. Further discussion with Javier and his cohort resulted in the discover that this unknown wine had been gradually gathering accolades across the US and Europe. A certain Mr Robert Parker was enthused with all the past vintages. I was hooked.
This wine is now proudly on sale exclusively through The Naked Grape in the UK, and will show great complexity and style in kept over the next 10-15 years.
