BODEGAS SIERRA CANTABRIA GARNACHA
BODEGAS Y VIÑEDOS SIERRA CANTABRIA

The varietal 2016 Garnacha fermented in stainless steel and underwent malolactic in barriques (15% new), where the wine matured for 14 months. It's spicy and aromatic, quite floral and perfumed. This is from a plot planted in 1927 on alluvial soils, a plot that keeps very good freshness. The wine is very clean too, medium-bodied, with some grainy tannins, very apt for food. It's serious and Atlantic, dry and without any sweetness, serious and fresh. This is a great vintage of finesse, really spectacular and improving in the glass. It should develop nicely in bottle. 20,000 bottled in April 2019.
