Wine match

Castano 2011 Rosada (rose) from Yecla, Spain. 100% monastrell (aka mourvedre or mataro). Fresh with nice grip. Raspberry canes. Chalky, dry, savoury. The bones of canned tuna – in a good way. $15

Guigal 2010 Rise from Cotes du Rhone, France. Predominantly Grenache, but a bit of a Rhone blend. Dry but not austere. A “cherry ripe” bar but not sweet. Cherry wood. Savoury and very more-ish. $25
