Description

Like everything else from this heroic family enterprise in Aragon, this great value Garnacha-Tempranillo blend is produced from the family’s organic vineyards in their home town of Lécera. The land is sandy and rich in minerals, with a layer of stones that retain the heat during the summer and help drainage in the winter.

Grapes are harvested and warm-fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for two weeks, extracting loads of flavour and colour but not over-extracting tannins. The resulting wine is youthful, vibrant and fruity, bright maraschino red with purple edges, and an explosion of red berries and floral aromas on the nose. Warm and juicy, there’s a lovely balance of sweet summer berries and tangy red and black currants, just enough tannins for structure but remaining smooth and easy-drinking.

Serve up with tapas, barbecued meats or mediterranean tomato dishes.

Producer: Tempore

The Yago Aznar family belong to this region of Lécera in Aragón, attuned to the extreme climate and tough landscape with a shared passion for wine-making spanning four generations of viticulturists. Today the 70 hectare estate is run by siblings Paula and Víctor Yago Aznar and their organically certified operation is predicated on the principle of 'Tempore' or time, or more precisely 'seedtime', leaving the vines to express themselves free of intervention and with the utmost respect for the land.

Here they cultivate exclusively autochthonous varieties of the region, Garnacha, Tempranillo, Macabeo and white Garnacha grapes, with 70+ year old traditional Garnacha bush vines coexisting with younger fully trellised vineyards. The entire estate is organic with a new state of the art winery built in 2002.
