Las Carlinas Old Vine Garnacha

Las Carlinas Old Vine Garnacha

Las Carlinas Old Vine Garnacha 2017 hails from the little known DO Campo do Borja, located in Aragon just south-east of La Rioja. There is a tremendous wine growing tradition in Campo De Borja, dating back to the 12th century. Defined as continental in climate, cold nights and warm days helps the grapes retain acidity. Relatively low rain helth helps vine health and aids in concentrating flavours. Old vines as a term can mean over 25 years old. The older the vine, the lower the yield and more concentration in the grapes. In theory this means higher potential quality. The name Las Carlinas refers to a type of thistle, which is native to Spain with a yellow star-like flower.

Vineyards

The grapes were sourced from low-yielding (max. 4,400kg/ha.) bush-trained vines of more than 25 years of age, grown on the region’s distinctive rusty-red ferrous and stony soil.

Vinification

Produced from hand-harvested grapes, stored in concrete tanks with 20% aged in French oak barrels for added complexity.

Tasting Notes

Las Carlinas Old Vine Garnacha is a vibrantly aromatic wine with a particularly floral nose and lush fruit flavours with elegant minerality on the palate.

Delicious served with hearty braises or stews, especially when spiked with spice or paprika, but also works well with traditional British barbecue fare, sausages, burgers and steaks.
