Grenache Carignan (with grape skins) - Manchuela, Spain - April LE21
Pre-Order Only - Closes November 12, 2021
Available April 2022
The climate in Manchuela is ideal for reds; the inland region has a continental climate with high daytime
temperatures and long hours of sunshine but is still close enough to the coast to experience cool nights
thanks to Mediterranean winds. This temperature swing creates favourable conditions for red grapes to
slowly ripen, perfectly developing tannin, colour, and varietal character. The resulting wines show excellent flavour, colour, and mouthfeel.
Grenache Carignan – Garnacha Cariñena in Spanish – is at once intense and harmonious. Deep ruby red with alluring aromas of blackberry, spice, and leather nuances. A provocative palate of black fruit, cherry, red berry and plum with well-integrated oak and accents of licorice and spice. Rich velvety tannins, moderate acidity, and a long savoury finish.
