Little cracker of a bin-end here from our producer in Cariñena. It’s from old Grenache bush vines, dry-grown and hand-picked, then aged in American oak casks. It’s from the 2016 vintage so has spent another 3+ years maturing and we reckon is at peak drinking now.
Cherry red in colour with intense aromas of strawberry, redcurrant and blackberry, the palate is still well structured, soft tannins and a clean, snappy acidity supporting those ripe red fruit notes, with hints of leather, game and white pepper.
Serve up with any red meat dishes, especially duck or game.
