Finca Espolla 2016
I have been drinking Finca Espolla for 5 or 6 years now. I drink when it is 6 to 7 years old, so I will not open the 2016 until 2022. The 2010, 2012, 2013 and 2014 have all been excellent with the good balance of fruit, tannin and wood. Strong follow through and excellent with strong tasting meats or cheese dishes. It is my 'go to' wine and at approx. 12£ a bottle I always keep some in stock.
Honestly one of the best Spanish wines I’ve ever had
I’ve ordered 24 bottles of this for my cellar now - this is an incredible wine for a great price. I first discovered it in Barcelona and now get it shipped to London regularly. Service from vinissimus is also great!
superb everyday wine
Amazing crowd pleaser - I buy 12 bottles at a time and have never found a wine like it on the price/quaity spectrum. Big fruity flavours but not overdone, still has a touch of class.
I frequently purchase this wine. Good flavour , body and lengthy taste. Ideal for red meat eaters ! I almost don’t like to let others know about my discovery !
Great value wine
I’m a regular consumer of finca espolla and have never been disappointed . Robust but with good fruit. Recommended with red meats.
