Tasting notes

Deep, lively, intense colour. Floral and fruit aromas with mineral hints. Highly attractive aromas on entry. Very lively in the mouth; mature yet fresh. Delicious evolution; meltingly dense. Long-lasting, mineral and fruity finish. Very typical of fresh, ripe Garnacha.

... and, to enjoy it, you should...

Serve it at 15-18ºC, no more. So the Garnacha shows its best expression.

And, as it is a voluptuous wine, fresh, round, fruity and slightly spicy, it is the perfect companion to vegetables, meats, roasts and even lightly aged cow cheese.
