DO Almansa - Spain
100% Garnacha Tintorera
TERROIRThe 80-year-old vineyards are located 900 meters above sea level and are grown organically on a fairly poor subsoil of mainly limestone. Organic agriculture, nutrient-poor soils composed of stone covered with limestone slabs with very little rainfall throughout the year.
The grapes are harvested by hand from mid-October onwards. Once the grapes are in the tank, they remain for about 3 days performing a cold pre maceration to give the wine more colour, freshness and aromas controlled at about 28 degrees, then remains together with the skins for about 5 days performing soft daily pumping over for the extraction of fine tannins.
Malolactic fermentation is carried out in the same stainless steel tanks receiving a gentle bâtonnage stirring its fine lees for 3 months, which gives the wine more volume and elegance. After this, the wine is racked by gravity and aged for a further 14 months in medium-long toasted French Allier oak barrels of about 300 litres.
Can be served perfectly with tapas (chorizo, jamon iberico…) but also with risotto, grilled and roasted meat. Also delicious with mature cheeses.
