A Superb Torres Spanish Red Brilliant with a Lamb Stew

We finished off the Greek Lamb Stew from the night before (see 17 August) and selected a bottle of Torres La Plaza Real Garnacha Syrah 2008 from Sunday Times Wine Club.  Torres are a major Spanish wine producer and we have enjoyed other wines from them over the years.  This wine certainly enhanced their reputation still  further in our eyes.   So easy to drink.  Juicy and brambly with plenty of berry fruits.  Incredibly food-friendly and brilliant with this stew.  One of the more enjoyable reds we have tasted recently.  It was produced in tiny quantities and we understand it is unfortunately now out of stock.
