Description

Not to be confused with Grenache as we know it here in Australia, Garnacha Tintorera is a rare, red-fleshed grape with more dark fruit and chocolate characters. This wine is juicy and fresh, perhaps a touch lighter than most wines of this variety, with some savoury rustic characteristics and a bit of funkiness to it.

The region, Almansa, lies about 100 kilometres inland from Valencia and Alicante, whose extreme continental climate of cold winters and hot summers in conjunction with well-drained, stony, and nutrient-poor soils provide exceptional grape-growing conditions.

Spain right now is producing some exceptional value organic wines, that are now making their way to our shores, and this unique offering is a very welcome addition to that. Phenomenal value too.

A red with lovely purity of fruit, showing plums and blackberries, as well as chocolate and walnuts. Medium body, medium round tannins, and a fresh, fruity finish. From organically grown grapes.

Tasting Profile

Nose
Cherry red colour with touches of purple. The fragrance of fresh red fruits with hints of rose petals and violets. Sweet spices like cinnamon, salty spices like pepper, sandalwood, bay, and mint. Smooth at first with a final attack filling the mouth with a sensation of sweetness. Intense but pleasant tannins. Long and fruity finish.
