El Mentider 2016 

Tasting: Making great wine from a grape variety that many people for years thought was impossible, has given young winemaking couple Albert and Mariona many opportunities for naming their wines in a way that thumbs their nose at this presumption. El Mentider - The Liar - is a wine of beautifully aromatic and poised elegance. The nose is redolent of wild berries on late summer afternoons, the wine slides seductively across the palate, light in body, showing dusky blueberries, soft cassis, rounded plush black plum with a long finish.
