In a nutshell: A medium-bodied fresh and fruity Spanish red from La Mancha.
The lowdown: The Castillo del Moro range are, quite simply, good value, modern style Spanish wines that are made to be very pleasurable drinking. This, the red, is made from fruit grown on the plains of La Mancha and is mostly Tempranillo topped us with a little Syrah which gives a touch of backbone and spice. It's not oak aged and retains all the fresh flavours of crunchy cherry and ripe red berry fruit and it rounds off nicely with a smooth and silky palate.
When to drink: A splendid, easy-drinking, all occasion number that's great on its own and very versatile with food.
