Grenache Carignan

AVAILABLE APRIL 2022

GRENACHE CARIGNAN WITH GRAPE SKINS

MANCHUELA, SPAIN
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.
MANCHUELA, SPAIN

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.
