This is the first ever 100 percent Garnacha bottling from Rioja house, Campo Viejo. Garnacha or Grenache as it’s known in France’s Rhone Valley is actually one of the designated grapes allowed for production of Rioja red. Grapes for this wine come from Campo Viejo's vineyards in the lower Rioja Baja subregion and Garnacha thrives in these warm, dry conditions. Vines are planted in alluvial soils with clay, limestone and silt. Following harvest, the wine was fermented in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature, with a 12-day maceration. The wine then aged four months in new French oak barrels. It shows aromas of red berries, cherry, vanilla and spice. On the palate bright strawberry fruit, raspberry, cherry, dried herbal notes and hints of toast play out with supple tannins.
