Pacheco Garnacha 2018



Silky, roble-style Garnacha from dry-grown bush vines in Spain’s Jumilla region. This is lightly oaked, getting just a few months in second hand French oak barrels, but the effect is to fill out the palate and add savoury spice characters.

Bursting with fresh strawberry, raspberry and blueberry aromas, the palate is full, soft and silky smooth, juicy berries enveloped in chalky, chocolately tannins with wisps of vanilla and wood spice on gently rounded finish.

A delightfully smooth, all-rounder red that will go with everything from pizza and pasta to full roasts.

  • Rich, smooth, fruity

Producer: Pacheco Family Wines

This family-run bodega dates back to 1948 when Francisco Pacheco began to make wine from a small press at the family home. Today, with third generation sisters Elena and Emi Pacheco at the helm, the winery is now one of the most impressive and technologically advanced in the region, with a bustling wine tourism scene complementing the outstanding wines, olive oil and almonds being produced and exported.

Most of the vineyards are organic. Synonymous with Jumilla, the Monstrell grape is central to what Pacheco do in the vineyards and the winery, the hardy grape perfectly suited to the extreme conditions in Spain's arid south-east. Vineyards are covered in rough chalk stones, helping to reflect the sunlight from the parched limestone soils where low-cropped bush vines are dry-grown, low-yielding but producing oustanding fruit quality without the need for chemicals.
