This Garnacha is sourced exclusively from 70-year-old vines on the estate's "La Cantera" vineyard, which sits at an altitude of 1,500 feet. "La Cantera" translates as "quarry," referring to the vineyard's poor, rocky soil. Only old-vine Garnacha, whose roots run deep and which produce very low yields, seems able to thrive in this arid terrain. The grapes are hand-picked at optimal ripeness, fermented in stainless steel, and then aged for six months in second-passage oak.
Bright ruby-red in color with violet reflections, this wine offers fresh aromas of blackberries, plums, a hint of violets and toasted oak. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied with brisk acidity, with a silky texture, perfect balance and long length.
Pair with hearty stews, paella, and gazpacho(specifically Gazpacho Granadino).
