Drunk at Christmas
No, I wasn't. Drunk, that is.
But I did drink, and enjoy very much, this wine from Viña Ijalba.
A Maturana Tinta single varietal from 2009.
Dark juice, like concentrated cherries, and good acidity. Went down well with the turkey.
This particular grape variety, it transpires, is in fact Trousseau which has its origins in the Jura area of France. If you can, compare the Viña Ijalba version with wines from Tissot from the Jura.
