If this is what constitutes ‘rubbish’ then we are scurrying rats having a scrap soiree! Possibly the most well known wine produced by Erik Rohsdale so keep a firm grip on this one kiddies, wines like these only come around once in a robins-egg-blue moon. Erik started his wine production 10 years ago, in the rural and Mars-like landscape of the Murcia region. Since then he has harvested just about every grape himself, working without machinery or electricity, a truly singular approach to be ‘oohed’ and ‘awed’ at eternally. Harvested from high altitude vineyards that give his wines bounding freshness & astonishing depth – ‘Escombro’ is harvested from his favourite parcel! Made from a rare type of grape that has both red skins and red flesh, known as a teinturier, it spends 10 days in 500yr old amphora(!) + 10 months in old oak barrels. Herby olives, Earth oven, dried fruit, raspberries + blossoms & black cherry coulis. Pour alongside teriyaki, teriyaki & teriyaki!
