Manga del Brujo Tinto 2021 750ml
70% Garnacha, 15% Syrah, 10% Provechon, 5% Mazuelo. Alcohol 14.5%
The 2021 is a return to a fresher style. Bright black cherry fruit is backed up with notes of wild mountain thyme, lavender and cracked black pepper. Ripe yet fresh and elegant with a long savoury finish.
Manga del Brujo tends towards a more savoury style with chalky tannins due to the inclusion of 10% Provechon and some extended maceration and doble pasta of Garnacha on Syrah skins. This wine is born in the chalk and clay soils on the slopes of Monte Armantes in the Ribota Valley of Calatayud at an altitude of 600-800m above sea level. These are free-draining soils, in an area with significant diurnal temperature changes,
Manga del Brujo is an homage to Mohama Rami (architect to Papa Luna), considered to be one of the most important architects in medieval Aragon, leaving an indelible Mudéjar character on our landscape.
“It’s primary and fruit driven… with concentration, freshness, sous bois and a little of an homage to Châteauneuf with an Aragon twist… Very tasty… Superb value.” Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate
