El Escocés Volante

Literally translated as ‘the flying Scotsman’, El Escocés Volante is the brainchild of Spanish resident and Scottish winemaker Norrel Robertson MW. He learned working from the cellar up, including placements in Chianti, Portugal, Australia, France and Chile, eventually completing a postgraduate viticulture and oenology course at Lincoln University in Christchurch, New Zealand, graduating with distinction.

Norrel produces wines from across some of Spain's more obscure wine regions: his speciality is garnacha, in particular from Calatayud, but he also makes excellent wines in Galicia, Murcia and Andalucía.

Spain is often said to be the home of affordable fine wines, and I think this garnacha-syrah-mazuelo shows this beautifully. This is a fantastically cheery, big fruit-driven wine that brings a smile to the lips. Dark in colour, the nose is all stewed black fruits with a hint of spice, while the luscious cherry, plum and chocolate palate bowls you over like an over-exuberant black Labrador.

… in many ways a Spanish take on a Cotes-du-Rhone, although interestingly it is made by a Scotsman, Norrel Robertson MW. It is made from old vines grown at altitude, and the resulting wine is very deep in colour, with red fruits, Asian spices and almost a touch of Christmas cake on the nose, followed by more red fruits, some earthy notes, ripe tannins and a long, quite dense, finish. This is hearty wine, It is really good value and would work very well with a beef casserole or a cassoulet.

A wine that has been made with Norrel Robertson who specialises in the expression of the gnarly old garnacha vines in Spain. This one is a huge, chunky beast, yet the tannins and layered fruit remain silky and very moreish.
