Crushed & Cured

La Purisima, Filarmonia, Yecla, 2021


Certified organic & vegan, this is a crowd pleaser, offering a gush of very ripe fruit - plum, blackberry and dark cherry - all underpinned by hints of vanilla and cinnamon. The ripe Syrah brings a certain sweetness. There's a pleasing mouth-coating quality too, with just a little well integrated tannin.

Monastrell, Syrah and Merlot, 34% of the former and 33% of the others.

The instruments on the label are presumably intended to symbolise the varieties playing in harmony: certainly this is smooth and rounded.
