VARIETY

Garnacha 100%

VINEYARD

Grapes from our plots “La Casilla del Rihuelo” and “Serrano”, located on the lower slopes of Yerga, in the municipality of Alfaro. The bush-trained vines in the two vineyards are on average over 50 years old and have been dry farmed during vegetative growth. Production yields around 4000-5000 Kg/Ha.

CLIMATIC YEAR

This has proven to be a historic vintage where the impeccably healthy grapes were harvested and found to have a lower pH than usual. Despite being a dry vintage, the rainy days were very well distributed and the vineyard did not suffer water stress.

During the harvest the temperatures were very mild, which added to this impeccable state of health that impressed us so much.

PREPARATION

The grapes are harvested by hand and transported in 300 Kg crates. The crates are then chilled in a cooler to ensure the grapes go into the tank at a low temperature.

The grapes are destemmed and lightly pressed.

Cold maceration occurs in the tank prior to fermentation to complement the extraction that occurs during alcoholic fermentation. The wine is then aged for 4-6 months in French oak.

This is a wine that undergoes no treatment and may leave a little sediment at the bottom of the bottle as a consequence of its natural development.

TASTING NOTES

COLOUR

Purple red, medium-high intensity.

AROMA

Complex. We can appreciate notes of red fruit, balsamic notes from the scrub, such as thyme, all very well integrated with the toasted notes of its period ageing. High intensity.

ON THE PALATE

A rounded wine, balanced, fresh, with a fine silky tannin; medium persistence in the mouth.

SERVING RECOMMENDATIONS

Consume at a temperature of 14ºC.

PAIRING

Tasty dishes such as cured cheeses, any type of meat, flavourful fish or even nuts.

HISTORY

Ángel

This wine is a tribute
to our Uncle Ángel

My uncle Ángel volunteered to drive a float made in Alfaro in the festivities of San Mateo de Logroño

The boy handling the plough pulled by the horse is Uncle Ángel and he was participating in a ploughing contest organized by the Ministry of Agriculture

In the past, until you finished your military service, you did not “officially” join the working world. So, when our uncle finished his service in 1965 he decided to plant this bush-trained Garnacha vineyard with our grandfather Roque.

He did his service in aviation in Zaragoza, hence, the military print on the label of this wine

Today, this Garnacha vineyard is one of our most prized: La Casilla del Rihuelo
