The Naked Grape Wine Merchants

Special September offer on the perfect red wine to go with your Sunday roast

Milcampos Tempranillo – usually £18.99 per bottle, just £16 each when you buy two bottles throughout September.

Here is Simon’s story about how he discovered this wine:

“I first tasted this wine in the depths of winter in The Mayfair Hotel (I know, tough life eh?). The room was awash with wines and all I had to do was find the star sitting quietly waiting to be discovered. A table of Spanish wine yielded the result I was looking for. Chatting in my pigeon Spanish with Javier, I began to taste and mid-way along the table was this Tempranillo. I was immediately hit by it’s intense perfumed nose, enticing and alcoholic. The flavour was immediate on the palate, blueberry fruits, oak power and the most beautiful silky texture.

“The elaborate mosaic wine label is a direct reflection of the large stone laden hillside vineyards. Funds don’t stretch to removing these large boulders, so all the grapes are hand picked and the resulting grapes are very fine indeed. Further discussion with Javier and his cohort resulted in the discovery that this unknown wine had been gradually gathering accolades across the US and Europe. A certain Mr Robert Parker was enthused with all the past vintages. I was hooked”.

This wine is now proudly on sale exclusively through The Naked Grape in the UK, and will show great complexity and style if kept over the next 10-15 years.

This wine is the perfect with your Sunday roast. Not wanting to wish the summer away but the autumnal days are just round the corner.

Usually £18.99 per bottle, currently stunning value £16 each when you buy 2 throughout September.
