It is a balanced wine, not over-powerful for its abv, with a chewy palate and a good depth to the finish.
This wine’s spice and fruit will pair wonderfully with sweet or savoury veal or pork sausage, Cuban ropa vieja and beef or pork empanadas. There is enough weight to have with chicken mole poblano (chilli and chocolate sauce).
Barahonda make balanced and expressive wines full of colour, flavour and complexity which have their own personality.
The Barahonda logo points to their wines being rooted in the soil and made from the vines. Grapes are carefully nurtured, as an essential part of the personality and quality of the wine.
