Winemaker's Notes:

100% old vine Garnacha from high altitude vineyards (2400-3000ft) in the mountainous village of Atea.

"The vineyards for this new project are between 850 and 1000 meters of elevation and the Garnacha vines are up to 100 years of age, planted on pure slate. Purple-colored, this 100% Garnacha offers a lovely perfume of spice box, mineral, and wild cherry. This leads to an intensely fruity wine with loads of flavor, a smooth texture, and a pure, fruit-filled finish."
Wine Advocate

"Inky purple. Very fresh, straightforward aromas of raspberry and blackberry, plus a hint of cracked pepper. Juicy and tannin-free, with spicy red and dark berry flavors and gentle mineral lift. Easy to drink and a superb value, with good finishing bite."
