La Garnacha Salvaje del Moncayo 2015

SpainVintae is a dynamic, young and innovative family project involving seven wineries in six different Spanish DOs. José Miguel Arambarri Terrero, together with his sons Ricardo and José Miguel, and winemaker Raúl Acha, seeks out interesting terroir, and in the case of this wine, old garnacha vines. They aim to create authentic, affordable wines with modern, approachable and interesting packaging. These old bush vines come from the mountains of Moncayo, in Aragon and northern Navarre. Medium bodied and downy soft, with raspberry, forest berries, anise on a generous strawberry jam core. Fine cinnamon and nutmeg spicing on the moderate finish. This is approachable, savoury, not dumbed-down, and ready for your chicken thighs or root vegetables.Tasted: 11 January 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 21.90 private wine shops Producer: VintaeVarietal: GarnachaCSPC: 496398UPC: 8437008635972
