    Oz Clarke - Three Wine Men - shares his thoughts on the Cara Sur Criolla...

    'This is a lovely bright, light-bodied red, with a bracing acidity and grape-skin chewiness to go with its unique flavour of redcurrant jelly and rosehip syrup, tamarind peel and orange pith. But this wine isn't just about what it tastes like. You're drinking history here...

A delicate, off-dry wine full of orchard fruits and spicy notes. Gewürz actually translates to 'spice' in German, which sums this wine up perfectly.
