Natalie's Score: 92/100

From the Rioja wine region, Hidalgo Tradición H 2018 is a full-bodied Tempranillo with a splash of Graciano and Grenache added to the mix. Grapes were sourced from 70-plus-year-old bush vines and the blended wine was aged in American and French oak barrels for 24 months. Plushy with dark plum, red berry fruit, black olive, baking and pepper spice flavours balanced with food-friendly acidity. Tannins are chewy. Pour with grilled meats.

Food pairings: roast pork, tourtiere, grilled game sausages, meat-lover's pizza, rustic lasagne.
