Tasting Notes: Raspberry, Cherry, Vanilla, Spice
Bryan MacRobert originally hails from Swartland, South Africa, where he grew up and learned to cultivate vineyards and produce wine while studying viticulture and oenology at South Africa's Stellenbosch University. His travels after graduating took him to Rioja, Spain, where fell in love with the region's winemaking and later moved there to launch the MacRobert & Canals winery. The first vintage for Laventura was only in 2013, but already the wines are winning some serious plaudits.
Nicely balanced, light to medium-bodied, soft tannins. moderate acidity, complex yet refined. The palate is fresh with flavors of cranberry, raspberry, strawberry, red cherry. brioche, vanilla, white pepper, and cinnamon. Drink with a lamb burger.
