Festive Reds! San Gregorio – Las Martas Garnacha (2014)

San Gregorio – Las Martas Garnacha (2014)

For part two of my festive reds were off to sun-drenched Calatayud, Spain. With high altitudes and hot dry summers this region produces some fantastic big bold reds with juicy ripe fruits.

Upon pouring you are greeted with a deep intense dark purple colour, followed by a strong black cherry nose with light herbaceous tones.

The initial palate gives a good level of acidity balancing out some great raspberry and cherry flavours. As the well received tannins coat the mouth there are subtle liquorish tones leading into a long finish with a twist of pepper.

Made from 100% Garnacha, this wine is typical of the region with it’s full on ripe fruit flavours and high alcohol content – 15%. Using grapes from a single vineyard, or ‘Vinedos Singulares’, this wine is genuinely unique and a great accompaniment to any wintery dish.
