Garnacha de Fuego Old Vines 2015
|Brand||Garnacha de Fuego|
Wine AdvocateTwo gorgeous reds from Breca include the generic 2015 Garnacha De Fuego from Aragon. This comes from a large regional vineyard spread over many different terroirs. The vines are respectably old, all having been planted between the end of World War II (1945) and 1976. The wine is 100% Grenache from the oldest clone of Grenache in the world and the one that was adopted by France in the Rhône Valley and the Languedoc-Roussillon. The wine spent its entire life in cement and stainless-steel tanks before being bottled unfiltered. A lovely sleeper from Jorge Ordoñez Selections, this wine show loads of black raspberry, cherry, liqueur notes, licorice, a lush medium-bodied mouthfeel, beautiful purity and a juicy texture. Drink it over the next several years. It is a remarkable wine value!
Wine SpectatorThis dense red delivers rich flavors of macerated berry, dark chocolate and licorice, in a thick, velvety texture, with light tannins and just enough acidity for balance. A bit candied, but appealing. Drink now. 10,000 cases made.
