En Sus Trece 2018 750ml

18,00 

100% Old Vine Garnacha

Unevolved and intense colour with light purple rim. Pronounced cassis and cigar box nose with lifted oral perfume, violets and black olives. Full and unctuous on the palate with intense black fruit characters, well-integrated oak and a long sumptuous finish. From high altitude old vine plantings on slate and quartzite soils.

“As usual, this Garnacha persists en sus trece (Spanish expression meaning stand your ground) and keeps showing the soul of this grape. It is ripe and has dark fruit, plums, black cherries and cedar aromas. A fruit bomb! Juicy with tense acidity. Lovely tannin management, pleasantly balanced. Perhaps, in Norrel’s wines, this is the one in which I see all his authenticity.” Ferran Centelles for jancisrobinson.com

Description

For more detailed information, see our fiche technique here

The beautiful design on this label was inspired by the mudéjar art that can be found in villages, towns and cities all over Aragon as well as other parts of Spain.

This wine is named in honour of Pedro de Luna, the then Pope Benedict XIII who refused to give up his position as Pope in Avignon and originated the saying ‘mantenerse en sus trece’, still used in Spain today, meaning to stand one’s ground.

This wine forms part our range celebrating the life of this colourful character who, interestingly, issued the papal bull founding the University of Saint Andrews in Scotland.
