Gueta-Lupia 2001 Crianza Red Estate Wine

Celler de Bordalás García DOC Priorat

In a wood case

55% Garnacha, 35% Cariñena, 5% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at 26 deg.C., with maceration for 28 to 30 days. It is aged 16 months in new French Allier oak except for the Cariñena which is aged in American oak as Rafa believes it gives more rounded tannins and richer jammy aromas, and then 6 months in bottle. 13.75% Vol. Incredibly dark cherry colour, splendid, very intense nose with rich blackcurrant fruit and hints of minerals and slate, massive and mouthfilling vibrant blackcurrant and bramble fruit with complex notes of spices and minerals, great structure and depth with elegant ripe tannins that end in a long and memorable finish. Absolutely superb, a classic. It may be laid down for the next 5 years.

2001 vintage awarded 4 stars by Decanter - October 2006
