I thought i’d finish off a bottle of red tonight as i cooked myself a rump steak – the Spanish Las Corazas Tempranillo. A 3yr old red from the Castilla-La Mancha region
A dark ruby colour awaits you and on the nose it gave off a significant blackcurrant and a slight hint of vanilla, followed with a taste that emphasised both flavours just right. It gives a soft, smooth and an almost velvety texture which gently brushes open your taste buds to leave you wanting to finish the bottle! It gave a slight dry after-taste and an almost non-existent harshness to the overall experience.
The rump steak fitted well with the wine, not a lot of change in taste, and i would recommend something similar if you dine out and after something fairly inexpensive.
