This Spanish red blend, made from organic Garnacha and Syrah grapes, is grown on the steep hills of one of Europe’s highest altitude vineyards, which inspired Picasso and numerous other artists and in 2013 became an Unesco Biosphere Reserve. The old Grenache vines, mostly handpicked and up to 60 years old, are the unsung heroes of the region, responsible of some of the worlds most celebrated reds. Giving this rich, medium to full bodied wine its unique and artistic character. Vegan friendly.
- In Appearance: Clear, dark ruby-red colour.
- On the Nose: Generous fruit with a nice balance, a nuanced and spicy aroma. The bouquet is dark, ripe forest berries such as wild raspberry, cherry and blackberry. Slightly animal notes and hints of vanilla, oaky notes, some sweet liquorice, mineral and sage.
- On the Palette: Well-balanced, medium-bodied wine with a generous fruit and spiciness. A wine with a style shaped by its origin. Flavours of forest berries such as cherry, blackberry and wild raspberry. There are also notes of black pepper, mineral and sage. The wine has a finely tuned oaky character, some animal notes and vanilla sweetness. Delightful freshness with soft persistent tannins, round full-bodied mouthfeel and long, pleasant finish.

I really enjoyed this wine while staying in the cottage at the countryside. The taste is wonderful and flavours are coming one by one.
