“Very pretty, old-vine garnacha with dried strawberry, light vanilla and some floral undertones, such as roses. It’s medium-to full-bodied, layered and firm. Fresh finish. Drink now. “
"100% Garnacha. Vineyards planted between 1921 and 1952 at between 450 and 650 m above sea level in Badarán and Cárdenas. Hand-harvested. Partially destemmed. Alcoholic fermentation in oak vats. Aged in French oak vats for 12 months. 10,460 bottles.
Tasted blind. Please, what a wonder! High-quality and high-intensity sweet red fruits, strawberry caramel, juicy and well balanced with acidity. Tasty wine, with a lot of material but at the same time drinkable and pleasant. This wine is insane for its price and cannot be missed. A bargain. VGV 17/20 points. (FC)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
This very old vine Grenache comes from select micro-plots in vineyards in Alto Najerilla, Badaran, and Cardenas. The 60+-year-old vines are planted at high density at an altitude of 600 meters. The calcareous silty soils have an elevated iron component, with rocky colluvial components over top of clay, and limestone. This type of soil produces elegant, refined, and fresh wines. Tasting Notes: A modern style Old Vine Grenache with a black cherry red color. Intense and fresh on the nose, with balsamic notes, wild red fruits, and some dried herbs. On the palate, the wine is agile, fresh, and fruity, with good fluidity and great complexity. A beautiful finish with spice.
