'Propiedad' Garnacha 2015

Size

95% Garnacha with a bit of Monastrell and field blend Viura, this is a blend of five old vineyards at 600+m altitude under Mt Yerga. Las Mulgas is the oldest of these, at 90 years old and 650m. The others are Corral de Serrano, Valviejo, Valfrio, and Valmira. These vineyards represent the 'limit' for Garnacha - any higher than this and you get unripe, thin-skinned Garnachas. Fermented in Bocoi (foudre), aged in 650l French oak and bottled unfiltered. From 2010, Propiedad is the reward of a decade's intense labour by Álvaro in returning the Alfaro vineyards to their 'natural' viticultural direction: organically-grown bush-vines of Yerga's heritage Garnacha genetics.

More earth, woody heart vine perfume overlays over lipstick savoury red fruit with radish and herbal tang. Deep vine wood with spice, earth, herb, spice and space. Full of light and air, vibrant with soft fresh acidity.
