Half Rota tincture, half Syrah, aged for 5 months in French oak, Iceni 2019 is an explosion of youth on the nose and in the mouth. A coupage that can be changed each vintage, since, as with the other wines in the winery, this wine does not respond to a specific varietal composition but to a style. Each year it will be made with the grapes with the highest fruit concentration from the vineyards of this winery, which also have other grape varieties such as petit verdot or cabernet sauvignon. It is a red in accordance with the Tesalia trend of minimizing the time in the barrel to achieve the maximum expression of the terroir.
With less than a month of life, Iceni completes the range of this Cadiz winery that has earned the nickname of ‘the jewel of the south’ for the quality and uniqueness of its wines. A project born in 2008 in the hands of Richard and Natalia Golding, father and daughter of an English family passionate about horses and in love with the virgin land of southern Spain, located in the foothills of the Sierra de Grazalema, very close to Arcos of the Border. An Andalusian 'grand cru', as they boast, from which only refined and complex wines come out, ready to be measured against the best reds in the world.
The Iceni 2019 mix of varieties is very versatile at the table and is ideal for chatting from the aperitif. It is a wine that, despite its youth, maintains its character for up to three or four years (if we manage not to open it until then). Iceni is able to accompany any meal from start to finish thanks to its freshness. We suggest serving it a couple of degrees below normal for a red wine this spring, and accompanying it with cold dishes, rice and fish, even with recipes in which the spicy note predominates, to discover all its nuances.
Tell this when serving: The Eceni or Eceni (in Latin, Iceni) were a British tribe that inhabited England between the 1st and 1st centuries BC. They were known as the "horse people" and began to mint money around 10 BC, creating a special adaptation of the Gallic horse / head design. The same image that is represented on the capsule of the bottle of the new Bodegas Tesalia wine, whose label (again, the work of Valentín Iglesias) continues to revolve around mythology and the equine world, as did his older brothers, ARX and Thessaly.
