Nose: A vibrant nose captures one's senses immediately, exuding rich aromas of red cherries, wild raspberries, and fresh red currants. Hints of rose petals, earthy loam, and a touch of dried herbs add complexity and depth to its aromatic profile.
Palate: The palate is immediately struck by a juicy rush of red fruits, interwoven with nuances of fresh strawberries, pomegranates, and a touch of cranberry tartness. Well-integrated tannins lend structure, while the youthful vibrancy of the wine is punctuated by subtle notes of spice and a hint of minerality.
Finish: This wine offers a refreshingly crisp finish, characterized by red fruit flavors that linger, intermingled with subtle hints of spice and a touch of fresh thyme.
The 2020 Primeur Priesto Picodu is delightfully versatile in its pairing potential. It shines when matched with light meats such as grilled chicken or turkey, as well as Spanish tapas dishes like chorizo or patatas bravas. The wine's fresh character also makes it a suitable companion for fresh salads or even sushi. A young Manchego or a creamy goat cheese would also be an excellent cheese pairing, enhancing the wine's fruit-forward nature.
