Erik Rosdahl Escombro & Bujes

The crazy Swede is back! Erik Rosdahl brings not one but two wines to the Hot 50, that will leave nobody indifferent. Crafted in an extremely natural way, with no formal training, Erik operates in the warm south-eastern region of Spain. But the wines are too crazy to carry a sticker from the any DO, or maybe he just didn't realise there was some paperwork to fill in. You never really know with Erik, EXCEPT when it comes to the wines.

Escombro is made from Alicante Bouschet grape, one of the few reds grapes with red juice. It shows here, as this wine exhibits an insanely-deep, tooth-staining colour. The wine comes across meaty and full of black olives and smoke, more tannic than the 2012, but just as intense. Take no prisoners style!

Bujes is one of the most "alive" wines I've ever tried. Just quite how Erik has packed so much Framboise nose into this wine is anybody's guess. The palate is not as brooding as the Escombro, though still fairly tannic. One for wild-boar chops or brontosaurus ribs!
