Cien Y Pico Knights-Errant 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

This exciting new producer is based in Manchuela, a small region in southeastern Spain. The name means ‘Hundred and something’, and refers to the age of the ancient Garnacha Tintorera vines from which the wines are made. The project is the result of many years of experience in the region, and the personal quest of four winemakers (Australian Zar Brooks, his Bulgarian wife Elena Golakova Brooks, Spaniard Luis Juminez Garcia and Italian Nicola Tucci) to protect and preserve the 19th century vineyards they found in Manchuela. Knights Errant is a superb red wine from Cien y Pico showing almost black in colour, with aromas of cassis, oak and blackcurrant emanating from the nose. On the palate it is juicy and concentrated, with young tannins. Fantastically firm and well-structured, all in all a superb wine!
