Azul y Garanza
60% Garnacha & 40% Graciano
Certified organic vineyard parcels - Garnacha from old bush vines in the Las Placas vineyard and Graciano located in Las Bardenas, right beside the Desierto vineyard (Murillo) on extremely arid clay-calcareous based soils.
Fermentation in concrete followed by 10 months aging in French, American and Hungarian oak, 25% of which is new.
TASTING NOTES |
The juxtaposition of Graciano’s searing, lean acidity and fleshy richness of Garnacha give you a Jack Spratt–esque complementary relationship – a perfect match. On the nose, you will find cherries, raspberries and blueberries with some hints of anise. That combination of varietals leads to the wine being on the one hand fresh with acidity, and on the other quite ripe and rounded. Fine tannin brings the wine together with taut structure.
PRESS | 90 VIN
“Brilliant ruby-red. Perfumed scents of blueberry and cherry open up and deepen with aeration. Notes of licorice and bitter chocolate emerge on the palate, joining concentrated, appealingly sweet black and blue fruit flavors. In a plush but energetic style, finishing with strong punch and very soft shaping tannins.” - Josh Raynolds
