Garnacha 2016

Size

From bush-vines around 25 years' age, hand-picked then fermented simply in stainless steel, and bottled directly from these vats to emphasise freshness and delicacy. They yield a classical red cherry and spice Garnacha with earthiness and bright natural acid clearing any lick of cloying ripeness. The fruit grows at around 600 metres altitude, on gravelly chalky loam. A vivid purple-tinged ruby. Medium-bodied, rich and floral cherry fruit is cut with licorice, spice crushed rock and Mediterranean herbs. It is rich and ripe but has great freshening acid and no cloy. Silkily textured tannin is beautifully sweet, structuring the mouth perfectly.
