Northen Spain offers some of the most classic expressions of Garnacha (or Grenache), with this wine being a notable example, made from grapes harvested from ancient 'wild' bush vines in the mountainous Moncayo end of the Ebro Valley.

Grapes were harvested by hand during the third week of October, the wine then spent 5 months in French oak barrels.

On the nose, there are powerful aromas of wild berries and tobacco leaf,  tempered by a sense of freshness and floral edges. The middleweight palate has ripe red fruit and a Burgundian minerality, with subtle French oak. Drink with barbecued red meats or spicy chorizo.
