18.5/20 | Jancis Robinson "This is at the pinnacle of delicacy for Garnacha. Amazing!"
92/100 | Guia Penin

It is not often that venerable British wine critic Jancis Robinson get so excited about wine in this price band but this is a special wine and a must for buy for Garnacha lovers. This wine is the result of blending four old vineyards planted mostly to Garnacha and a few other grape varieties plus a fifth plot planted to Syrah. Profound and captivating wild herb (thyme and chamomile) aromas. The palate is fruit-driven and refined with a lovely enveloping texture.
The fruit for this wine was grown on up to 77-year-old vines. Interesting to note that the wine is aged in egg-shaped tanks, not oak. Absolutely wonderful.
Jancis Robinson writes "The nose is unbelievably herbal and spiced, very complex bouquet (thyme, rosemary, medicinal herbs). The fruit is below the herbal layers; it has an elegant and fragrant expression. This is a classy Garnacha style – fresh, delicate and far removed from the orthodox powerful style. The fruit and the tannins are extremely mellowed. It is a Burgundian style of Garnacha. Like entering a herbal remedy store! This is at the pinnacle of delicacy for Garnacha. Amazing!"
