Castillo de Jumilla Monastrell-Tempranillo

Braised pork tenderloin rolled with a mushroom, nut, currants and sage stuffing, served with garlic whipped potatoes, and all garnished with freshly chopped parsley. Now this was a meal that begged a tasty medium to full bodied red wine; to prove that you don’t have to spend a ton of money on a delicious wine, we enjoyed it with the Castillo de Jumilla Monastrell/Tempranillo blend at $10.85 a bottle. The wine offers lots of cherry and spice flavours with a bit of acidity. It all worked nicely on one of these final cold evenings of this fading winter. Who says Winnipeg winters can’t be enjoyed?
