And now for something completely different.
Del Sol (Kisses from the Sun) is Spanish producer of easy-drinking sangria made solely from Tempranillo grapes. Only Spain and Portugal are allowed to use Sangria as a branded name. These wines are low alcohol (8.5%), easy-drinking picnic and BBQ style wines, and include fruit juices to complement the Tempranillo wine content.
The Rosé is very low in tannins, so is very sweet and juicy on the palate. In the glass it is a suitable pink colour.
The Red, while still only 8.5% alcohol tastes more like a traditional sangria with more red tannins on the palate and a longer finish.
These are ideally chilled summer wines – packaged in recyclable 500ml TetraPaks and retail for $10.99.
There will be 1.5L bottles available soon.
