Winemaker Notes

Vinos Sin-Ley's G Series is designed to showcase the Garnacha grape as expressed in 6 different D.O.s. The wines are all raised in stainless steel to present the fruit in its purest form.

Garnacha 100% from 120 year old vines.

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Puerta Bonita (G5) is made from 120-year-old Garnacha vines. Dark ruby, on the nose it displays baking spices, wild berries, and cherry blossoms. This leads to an intensely flavored, concentrated offering displaying the essence of the Garnacha fruit from which it was made. It contains a bit of structure and might actually deliver a bit more complexity with a year of bottle aging. However, there is really no reason to hesitate. This is a superb value.

In translation, Vinos Sin-Ley means "Wines Without Law". The objective of Vinos Sin-Ley is to create "new wines" that are value oriented. The concept, driven by creative innovation using nonconventional methods of harvesting, fermenting, blending, aging and labeling, results in wines exhibiting new fresh fruit driven flavors that are different from those achieved in the past.

Composed of a group of young winemakers from different regions in Spain, the wines crafted at Vinos Sin-Ley are value oriented, driven by experimentation, innovative insight and the shared philosophy of the winemakers. They meet twice a year to put into effect new projects of mutual interest and shared knowledge of the winemaking techniques implemented.

Known for bold reds, crisp whites and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place primary emphasis on its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally hot and dry. In the center of the country lies a vast, arid plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought.

Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache). Rioja also produces rich, nutty whites from the local Viura grape.

Ribera del Duero is gaining ground with its single varietal Tempranillo wines, recognized for their concentration of fruit and opulence. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, specializes in bold, full-bodied red blends of Garnacha (Grenache), Cariñena (Carignan), and often Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo dominate.

Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez.

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.
