Tasting Notes
This is made from Garnatxa Peluda, (The Hairy or better sounding, Downy Grenache) is a strain of Grenache which has hairs under the leaf which help maintain moisture and gives fresher more vibrant fruit than is classic cousin Grenache. Luis Gutierrez, writing in the Wine Advocate said, “There is a sappy spicy character to this red that I loved, cracked peppercorn with a wild side that made me think of a Syrah from Valais. It's really aromatic and showy. The palate is very refined, with an herbal twist that provides great freshness, perhaps from a relatively early harvest. Impressive!! 6,000 bottles were filled in September 2016.”
