    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

    Full-bodied but light in both color and tannin, Grenache loves the sun. It thrives in hot climates where it can easily achieve full ripeness. Grenache is best known in the Southern Rhône, where its plush texture and ample alcohol are tamed by savory Syrah and structured Mourvèdre, most notably in Côtes du Rhône and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Grenache originates in Spain, where it is known as Garnacha and is important throughout the country, particularly in Rioja, where it is blended with the more austere Tempranillo, and in Priorat in tandem with savory Cariñena (Carignan). It is also responsible for dry, fruity rosés in Navarra. In Sardinia, the variety is known as Cannonau and produces bold, rustic reds. In California, Grenache has achieved popularity both flying solo and playing a supporting role in Rhône-style blends.

    In the Glass

    In sufficiently warm conditions, Grenache produces smooth and generous wines that are loaded with red fruit flavors ranging from strawberry to cherry to dark berry. Richer examples can also show plum, chocolate, and 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. With its uncomplicated, friendly nature, Grenache is the ultimate barbecue red, pairing happily with lamb loin chops or spicy Italian sausages. Unlike most other full-bodied reds, Grenache’s low tannin level ensures that it will not be fazed by a good chili kick.

    Sommelier Secret

    Sardinia’s Cannonau is often revered for its association with a long, healthy life. Residents of the Italian island often live well into their 90s and beyond, and they credit this antioxidant-rich wine—along with their healthy Mediterranean diet—for their impressive longevity.
