''A beautiful wine that shows bright blueberries, tea leaves, tangerines, rosemary & thyme. Very refined and suave. Medium in body, but deep in flavours. Wonderfully tangy and vivacious throughout.'' 95 Points, James Suckling (Previous Vintage Review)
Hi Folks, The rarefied air of the Sierra de Gredos Mountain range in Central Spain have helped produce an approachable, silky, mineral laden and beautiful style of Grenache. With the vines up to 80 years old it takes on a graceful presence as when this wine ages its reminiscence of a top quality Morgon Gamay! And unlike many other Grenache's in the market, this has ample freshness with red and brambly fruit, minerally with an overlaying of savoury and spice tones. A beautiful wine. It demonstrates what altitude can do for the traditional warm climate of Spain. I should also add that in recent times this comes with much fan-fare from major wine writers most notably James Suckling and Luis Gutierrez who've recommended this as a must buy!
''A beautiful wine that shows bright blueberries, tea leaves, lemons, tangerines, pink guava, rosemary and thyme. Very refined and suave on the palate, which is medium in body, but deep in flavours. Wonderfully tangy and vivacious throughout. Such transparency and poise.'' 95 Points, James Suckling (Previous Vintage Review)
''Its pure Garnacha that is quite delicate and Mediterranean with citrus, floral and some herbal notes. It has the chalky tannins from the granite soils and is nicely balanced, with ripeness and a solid structure.'' 93 Points, Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate Magazine (Previous Vintage Review)
''Grenache does superbly well in Australia, but where I am really excited about drinking the variety from is Madrid's high country DO. Old vines, elevation, rugged vineyards, old school winemakers, some new-schoolers but most all just wanting to show us a pure expression of the variety from their place. Indeed, for mineral-laden red wines of bright fruit and ease of drinking, Madrid DO grenache has to be right, right up there in the list.'' Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
