La Cueva Pais Blend Hodgkinson, natural wine, Pais, Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon, ‘Vin de Soif’ entry level only in price, not in quality or drinkability. Unfined, unfiltered and very low in sulphites for a wine of this quality. What a find and great achievement, to make such a superb little drinkable red that ticks many of the boxes on our natural wine lexicon and comes in well under £10. The fruit is soft and juicy, dry, structured, but no harsh tannins. There is good acid balance and lovely fresh finish. La Cueva Pais is a real crowd pleaser of a natural wine, ideal for parties and get togethers or a Thursday night Pasta.
