Stunningly elegant and aromatic, this wine is a single vineyard field blend of predominantly Garnacha Tinta with around 10% Provechon and Garnacha Blanca. Grown on decomposed slate soils at an altitude of 980m. 2020 was the first vintage of this wine.
This wine originates in vineyards near the beautiful isolated old town of Torrijo de la Cañada, where wine production was once a major occupation but there are now only 4 garnacha vineyards remaining. The label depicts the private bodegas on the hillside overlooking the town where its inhabitants made their own wine in days gone by.
“The wine is paler and more aromatic than any of its siblings, with a showy nose of balsam and cooking spices, nutmeg and Jamaica pepper… with tons of aromatic herbs and fennel… the combination of altitude, slate and slow ripening (the grapes from 2020 were picked the 3rd of October, quite late for an early vintage). It’s medium-bodied and has very fine grainy tannins. Very surprising and different… Super!”
