El Burro 13 Bottle ShotEl Burro Kickass Garnacha 2013 $16.95 ★★★½

Kickass by name and kickass by nature (if ‘by nature’ means you’re looking for a bright, vibrantly fruity, berry-driven red that also has a sniff of cocoa and cured beef and boasts a plush, toasty finish)  According to the importer, it gets its name from the donkeys or “Burros” which have proved valuable in Spanish vineyards for centuries due to their skill at navigating the narrow paths between the vines.  Dangerously drinkable.  www.regionalwines.co.nz
