Botijo Rojo Viñas Viejas

Garnacha Viñas Viejas 2016

DESCRIPTION

El Botijo is a limited production, micro wine straight from a garage in Valdejalon (North East Spain) where Fernando Mora MW, Francisco Latasa and Mario López make wines with the absolute minimum of fuss. It’s named after the ancient clay drinking water container —still used by growers to day— cooling water in Spain’s hot, dry climate.

TASTING NOTES

Medium ruby colour with tears. On the nose it shows forest red berries over a background of smoked aromatics, white pepper and bayleaf. Fresh acidity, integrated alcohol, round firm tannins and medium body. An old vine garnacha with depth and complexity yet also good drinkability. Aged in used French oak for 6-8 months to polish tanins.
