Piqueras Oak-aged Organic Old Vine Garnacha

Bodegas Piqueras DO Almansa

100% Certified Organic Garnacha Tintorera, best small bunches, hand-harvested first week October at optimal maturity from 45-60 year old dry-farmed, ungrafted bush vines with yields of 1.2-1.5 kg per bush, planted at high altitude 750-900m where rainfall is scarce on cool, sandy plots with nutrient poor, limestone-rich soils to obtain sweeter tannins whilst preserving the fruit on the palate. Continuous maceration at 25°C for 2 weeks to preserve the primary aromas of fruit and not extract too much tannin on the palate, aged 5-6 months in Am. fine grain, medium-toasted 300 litre oak barrels. Rich, full-bodied, deep purple colour, extensive ripe dark fruit and wild fresh herbs, smooth juicy tannins and good levels of natural acidity combine to offer a wine full of flavour. Incredible value
