cherry and raspberry aromas are underpinned with spicy, peppery notes with hints of anise. An approachable
wine with vibrant, sweet, juicy fruit and great natural acid balance.
Ripe quince and lifted spice with a rich juicy concentration, along with intensely perfumed characters come from the sandy loam soil, and dark berry characters from the heavier red-brown soils. Life may be a bitch, but this wine will keep the complaints away, at least while you're drinking it!
|Blended from a selection of unoaked Grenache wines from various subregions of Aragon and Navarra where the climate is continental and relatively dry. Soils are typically alluvial, but zones of rich red-brown loams and white limestone are intermixed with very rocky slate at higher altitudes. Grenache (Garnacha) survives here without the need for irrigation. Yields are typically low and this, combined with a historical selection of smallberried,
deeply colored clones, produces wines of a more ”masculine” expression of the variety. Gentle handling, soft pressing, and maturation without oak all combine to preserve natural fruit expression.
