A wine that is over 13.5% alcohol with more complex flavours and a richer mouthfeel. Factors such as climate, grape variety, ageing in the winery, residual sugar level and alcohol level affect the fullness of flavour and will be good clues to look out for. A full-bodied wine would the equivalent to blue-top whole fat milk. Knowing your preference towards a light bodied wine vs a full-bodied wine can help you to find a wine you’ll enjoy. If you enjoy full-bodied wines with bold intensity, look out for these grape varieties; whites with 3+ years ageing, for the reds Malbec, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tannat, Mavrud

    I really enjoyed this wine. Enjoyability can be underrated and it’s here in spades.

    Holding it up to the light, the colours hold a mix of red cherry seen on a Beaujolais or a Pinot Noir in the deeper part of the glass, and a hint of the red brick seen on aged Rioja as the liquid thins out toward the edge.

    Young Spanish Tempranillo can taste a little rough or raw round the edges. Not so this Fautor which manages soft and well developed tannins, tasting like it’s got 10 years aging on it, yet still carries a fresh fruit layer on it.

    I tried it with a Moroccan lamb burger and Halloumi one night, then liver and bacon the next and it was a great match for both.

    Really likeable wine.
