Here's another stunning Spaniard for the Selección Especial series. These fine wine bargains have just one catch: we’re forbidden to name the wineries. But, in return, we can pass on 'cellar door' prices you'd never normally see. In this case, it’s a gorgeous Gran Reserva from an award winning bodega. They've passed on the final cases of this fine red in a one-off secret deal. Crafted in the low yielding but beautifully balanced 2012 vintage, it delivers deep, spicy fruit coupled with an appealing freshness even after 8 years. Thanks to extended aging in barrel and bottle, there's also a great complexity – orange peel, candied fruit and cigar box notes, with a long finish. Perfect now, the wine will continue to mellow for another decade.
