Anciano Clásico Garnacha Valencia
WHY WE LOVE IT
- Mostly non-irrigated vineyards with low yields. Terres dels Alforins is a fertile valley in the south west of the province 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.
Varietal Composition: 85% Garnacha, 10% Tempranillo, 5% Monastrell
Elaboration: Fermentation is in stainless steel tanks for 7 days at 72º F and then a portion of the wine is matured in oak barrels for 7 months.
Tasting Notes: Bright and intensely vibrant red fruit aromas with generous, smooth red and black berry flavors, soft tannins and a nice touch of spice from the oak.
Founded in 1945, Bodega La Viña is a dynamic wine company, one of the leading wineries in the Valencia P.D.O. It is located in the Valencian hill town of La Font de la Figuera near Spain’s Mediterranean coast. Norrel Robertson, Master of Wine, has selected this stunning value wine in collaboration with local winemaker, Jorge Caus Pertegaz.
