2015 La Garnacha

The Garnacha was vinified in a single 8,000L French oak foudre with indigenous yeasts and some stem inclusion. It then underweny malolactic in 225L French oak with batonnage followed by 10 months aging in barriques.

“There are ripe notes, and the nose felt a little blurry, slowly revealing some notes of hay and straw, with hints of esparto grass. They had some hail in 2015, so the quantities were lower because they had to sort the grapes. The palate reflects the fine minerality the chalky soils provide and also the tasty, almost salty finish.” – Luis Gutierrez
