From organic vineyards at Finca Viñalta, these old Grenache vines have grown on dry, rocky slopes for more than 75 years. Fermented using indigenous yeasts from the family’s own vineyards, the wine is aged for 14 months in new French oak barrels.
This is quite sublime. Medium bodied and deep cherry red in colour, it’s like walking through a fruit garden at the height of summer, wafts of blackcurrant leaf, sweet raspberry and dried scrub with tantalising hints of violets, tobacco and vanilla. The texture of the palate is where it’s at though, a glassy minerality supporting soft summer berries, melt-in-the-mouth milk chocolate tannins and afternotes of leather, coffee bean and toasted nuts, it’s pure class.
Decant for a good hour before serving and enjoy with spring lamb.
