Proyecto Garnachas Salvaje Del Moncayo 2018
Proyecto Garnachas Salvaje Del Moncayo is part of a collection of wines. The collection of wines ‘Proyecto Garnacha de España’ is a tribute to a variety that has historically been forgotten due to its complicated viticulture and difficult production. They have been rescued from obscurity thanks, in large part, to current consumer preferences.
Bright burgundy colour. The bouquet exudes aromas of raspberries, wild berries and tobacco. A surprising wine due to its roundness and youth. Fresh and red berry fruity on the palate with sweet tannins and mineral qualities.
100% Garnacha. The fruit comes from a vineyard of old Garnacha vines on the foothills of Moncayo in the Ebro Valley area. The north-facing vineyard’s vines were planted half a century ago. Soils are rocky with a high percentage of slate and pebbles.
Manual harvesting of the grapes during the third week of October. After fermentation, the wine ages for 5 months in new French oak barrels.
