Legado Muñoz Garnacha 2016

Castilla, Spain

Buy Now:

Lively, animated varietal red from this characterful, hot-climate grape. Cherry-coloured and aromatic, with warm and spicy notes of raspberry, clove and vanilla. Sweet, round tannins and excellent persistence of flavour. 
Drink on its own or with seared tuna with saffron paella or paprika chicken pie. 
Muñoz farms 400 ha of gnarled old vines, with an average age of 40 years and its winemaking facilities include 1,500 ageing barrels and a state-of-the-art bottling line that ensures clean, fruity wines. Today, the third generation of the family lives on the estate, above the 17th-century cellar where the best of Muñoz wines enjoy a “calm, transcendental” period of maturation.
Grenache is one of the world's most-planted varieties, but it enjoys little consumer recognition as it is generally hidden away in blends, with Syrah and Mourvèdre being the usual partners. At its best in warmer regions like the south of France, Iberia and Australia, it tends to give wines that are relatively pale in colour, high in alcohol and with exotic, unique flavours. Synonyms include Garnacha (Spain) and Cannonau (Sardinia).
