Viña Mariposa Tinto Red Wine Review

The Viña Mariposa Tinto Red Wine is a dry red wine which cost me £8.99 and had a 12% alcohol volume. It’s a sensual wine with a deep, rich, complex flavour that you will most likely have more than one glass of!

This red wine is rather deep in colour but has a slight translucency to it but is dense enough to be a medium quality red wine. I took a sip after examining the wine which it was dry and quite acidy to that I found quite satisfying to taste. I then proceeded to pour some of the wine into a decanter to explore the sensual smells of the wine – the aroma was smoky with notes of leather, tobacco and dark chocolate!

The aroma had also travelled quite far out of the decanter while up close I could smell a more toasty and a very nutty smell at that! I had then drank some more of the wine to taste whether these notes could be detected- I had tasted the hints of toastiness and dark chocolate while there was a slight note of nut and smoke. The wine was not as dry as I would have thought it to be but it was enjoyable nonetheless- it did not leave my mouth feeling as astringent as I had expected.

Thusforth, the wine is very complex but it could do much better in being more drier and acidy. The aftertaste lingered for a few moments but then was not noticeable yet I had enjoyed it thoroughly and do suggest pairing this with a nice roasted cut of lamb. I therefore give this red wine a score of 4/5:

Rating: 4 out of 5.
