Pronounced black cherry, cedar and spice aromas. The palate is supple yet richly-flavoured with layers of dark plum, bramble fruit and cherry supported by well-integrated tannins. Toasty notes, black pepper and dried fruit characters on the finish.
Produced mainly from Tempranillo, these grapes are sourced from 30 year old bush vines planted in the Sierra Cantabria foothills, and along the lower course of the Najerilla river - where soils are part alluvial and part limesone-clay. The portion of Garncaha comes from bush vines near the villlage of Badarán. The grapes are hand-harvested into 200kg crates, and sorted by hand at the winery. After 3 days maceration at low temperature, the must undergoes temperature-controlled fermentation in cone-shaped stainless steel tanks with daily remontage and delestage. The wine is then aged for 18 months in French oak barriques (new and second year), followed by 2 years of bottle ageing.
Will match hearty stews and richly-flavoured sausages.
