    A Spanish red named after the most non-Spanish sounding bloke we’ve ever heard of – "El Cid". He was a military leader and all round top bloke in medievil Spain though, so full marks there.

    Cid would be stoked to know that one day a kick arse Spanish red would be named after him. It’s a Spanish drop through ‘n’ through – predominantly Tempranillo (tem-prah-nee-yoh), Spain’s most prized grape, with a traditional old school European label.

    She might be old world on the outside, but she’s new world style on the inside – that means it’s fruit driven, rich and vibrant and perfect with your Spanish meats like chorizo and cheeses.
