    Winemaker Notes

    This unoaked, 100% Garnacha is made from 40 to 80 year-old vines, that displays beautiful black cherry hue with a magenta rim. It is bright, ripe and vivacious with notes of blackberries, blueberries and black plums, lavender and licorice with sleek slate-like minerals. In the mouth, it shows luscious black fruit flavors set into moderately dense and finely-milled tannins allied to lively acidity.

    Bodegas Sierra de Guara, Somontano, Spain
    Image of winery
    Bodegas Sierra de Guara opened in 1997. The idea was to make a wine expressing the character of Sierra de Guara, and therefore we count on the best equipment for bottling our essence in each bottle of Idrias.

    The winery uses the latest winemaking technology; from the moment the grape comes in and is handled but the skilled hands of our expert winemakers to bottling at neutral headspace pressure that protects our wine from all foreign agents. We believe that the automation of the processes ensures quality and we are committed, therefore, to innovation.

    Literally meaning ‘under the mountain,’ Somontano is a diverse region located in the foothills of the south central Pyrenees. Heavy winter rains supply the region with water even throughout the summer.

    Grenache

    View all wine

    Enjoying great glory across a variety of appellations, Grenache thrives in any warm, Mediterranean climate where ample sunlight allows its clusters to achieve full phenolic ripeness. The grape typically produces full-bodied reds interestingly light in both color and tannins. While it can make a charmingly complex single varietal wine, it also lends well to blending. Grenache's birthplace is Spain (there called Garnacha) where it remains important, particularly in Priorat where winemakers enjoy great liberties in blending Grenache with other varieties. Today it might be most well associated with the red blends of the Southern Rhône, namely Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes du Rhône and its Villages. The Italian island of Sardinia produces bold, rustic Grenache (there called Cannonau) whereas in California, Washington and Australia, Grenache has achieved popularity both flying solo and in blends.

    In the Glass

    In sufficiently warm conditions, Grenache produces smooth and generous wines that are loaded with strawberry, cherry blackberry, purple plum and in the richest examples, even cocoa, black tea or licorice.

    Perfect Pairings

    Despite its bold flavors, Grenache has very mild-mannered tannins, which makes it eminently quaffable on its own, yet easy to match with food. Because of its friendly nature, Grenache is the ultimate barbecue red, pairing happily with lamb chops, pork loin or tri-tip. Unlike most other full-bodied reds, Grenache’s low tannin level ensures that it will not easily be fazed by a bit of spice.

    Sommelier Secret

    Sardinia is often revered for its association with a long and healthy life. Residents of the Italian island often live well into their 90s and beyond, crediting this to their antioxidant-rich red wines, like Cannonau, along with their healthy Mediterranean diet.
