Grapes: 100% Garnacha (Grenache)
Style: Full-bodied and powerful
Wine Maker: Uvas Felices
And here's something unusual and different, but sumptous all the same.
This 'human cannon ball' throws caution to the wind - heady and magificent!
Perfumed nose of aromatic herbs, berry and cherry notes, and a touch of spice. The palate is elegant with forest fruit and blackberry characters backed by black pepper, spice and balsamic notes. Supple tannins and pure fruit meld into the long finish.
Vila Viniteca is a family business, established as a food and wine shop in downtown Barcelona in 1932, just two minutes walk from Santa Maria del Mar Basilica. In the early '90s, they decided to re-invigorate the business giving it a real focus on wine, and Uvas Felices (Happy Grapes) was born.
They craft a range of intensely pure and expressive wines from old vine Garnacha (between 50 and 90 years old) in Cadalso de los Vidrios (Madrid). Here low-yielding vineyards skirt the high mountain forests in the Sierra de Gredos hills.
Good with all Spanish dishes and most tomato based casseroles and Mediterranean cuisine. Also grilled or roasted red meats.
Suitable for Vegetarians.
