Hawkswood, Thurston Place, Rondo, Suffolk, England, 2019Regular price £17.50
The 2019 Rondo is the first under the new Hawkswood brand by Michael and Irene Rhodes of Thurston Place Winery. This vintage of the Rondo is seriously powerful. On the nose you might mistake this wine for a port, or even a Ripasso style wine - packed full of black fruits and earthy flavours. Get the wine in a decanter and leave it alone for a few hours and you'll be rewarded. Irene's advice is to enjoy it with cheese next to a roaring fire.
At Vino Gusto, we love selling local products, but the mere fact that they're local is secondary to quality when it comes to sourcing and buying outstanding wine. The winery at Thurston Place is just a few miles from our doorstep and Michael and Irene Rhodes strive to produce technically sound wines that they enjoy drinking themselves. Luckily for us, they're bloody good at it.
