Details

Alto Moncayo Veratón is a single varietal Grenache wine produced in the mountainous region of Campo de Borja, located in the northern Spanish province of Aragón.

This Spanish red wine was crafted by the Alto Moncayo winery, a brand of the Jorge Ordóñez Group, from 30 to 60-year-old vines planted on the hills of the Moncayo mountains. Soils are rocky and extremely poor, while climate is quite extreme.

Harvested by hand, the grapes of this Grenache red wine were carefully selected and vinified. Malolactic fermentation and the subsequent 16-month ageing period took place in new American and French oak barrels.

Alto Moncayo Veratón 2015 was not filtered prior to its bottling.

This old-vines Grenache will improve in the bottle for about 6-7 years.

Decant at least 1 hour before drinking.

Additional Information

Appearance

Alto Moncayo Veratón has an intense, bright, high cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.

Nose

This old-vines Grenache from Campo de Borja is deep and exuberant. Prominent notes of balsam, along with loads of black fruit, some intimations of red berries, notions of grinded pepper, english custard and moka. On the background, subtle aromas of aromatic herbs, garrigue and dry earth.

Palate

Bold, slightly warm and well-structured, this red wine by the Alto Moncayo winery is smooth, with a velvety body and a great texture. Notes of liquor-infused fruit, balsam, flowers and dry earth, wrapped in some creamy nuances. Great acidity, ripe tannins and long, refreshing finish.

Our personal opinion

Alto Moncayo Veratón 2015 is elegant, savoury and drinkable. Excellent pleasure-value ratio!

  1. somontano review by Super GRENACHE on 1/24/2018
    Value

    First-class Grenache, not as sturdy as it may seem considering it is a Somontano. The winery has softened its procedures, and now the oak is less prominent.
