Vine Roots Old Vine Garnacha Rioja

Made from hand-harvested Garnacha grapes, grown on vines that are over fifty years old. The vineyard is close to the village of Tudelilla, to the south-west of Lograño in the Rioja Baja region. After destemming the grapes are fermented, without crushing, in 500 litre American oak barrels. Bâtonnage and the malolactic fermentation is carried out in these barrels, prior to racking and ageing for six months in new American oak barrels. The nose shows red and black fruit flavours with a hint of spice; the palate is ample, smooth and richly flavoured.
