Anciano Clásico Garnacha
Spain’s other classic red varietal, Garnacha, offers a different style to the Tempranillo wines that have made Anciano a favourite around the world. We have worked with the team at La Viña to select this stunning value wine from Valencia, on Spain’s Mediterranean coast.
DO: Valencia – Spain
Winemaker: Jorge Caus Pertegaz
Winery: La Viña
Terres dels Alforins is a fertile valley in the south west of the province of Valencia and is called the “Valencian Tuscany”: a multitude of small plots between the sea and the “meseta” where vines have been tended since Roman times. Mostly non-irrigated vineyards with low yields. Fermentation is in stainless steel tanks for 7 days at 22°C and then a portion of the wine is matured in oak barrels for 7 months.
Bright and intensely vibrant red fruit aromas with generous, smooth red and black berry flavours, soft tannins and a nice touch of spice from the oak.
Sensational with slow cooked pork or lamb and other meats from the grill. Can be matched with moderately spiced meals, such as Moroccan tagines or excellent with hearty vegetarian dishes and mature cheeses.
Varieties: 85% Garnacha; 10% Tempranillo, 5% Monastrell
RS: 4.9 g/L
