Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

The grapes come from old vines vineyards, 60-80 years-old, with yields of 2T/Ha and located high on the hillsides, 3,000 ft above sea level, around Calatayud. The vineyards are planted in principally decomposed slate and gravely clay soils. Even though there is very little rainfall in the region (around 350ml per year), the clay is at depth and allows for the vines to obtain moisture and be dry grown.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Garnacha de Fuego Red (a 10,000-case cuvée of 100% old-vine Garnacha) was aged in stainless steel for six months. A Spanish Grenache fruit-bomb, it offers loads of strawberry and cherry fruit intermixed with hints of earth, spice and pepper, silky tannins, and a medium-bodied, delicious, savory mouthfeel. Drink it over the next several years.

Wine SpectatorThis plush red delivers rich, mouthfilling flavors of blackberry, dark chocolate and espresso, with light tannins and gentle acidity. Generous, but a bit formless. Drink now. 15,000 cases made.
