Availability: In stock
The Graciano grapes are sourced from organically farmed vines grafted in 2014 onto Merlot vines originally planted in 1999 in Finca La Verdosa, a vineyard with sandy soils at 500 metres of altitude.
Hand-picked and selected, the grapes were cold-soaked for 2 days in stainless steel tanks and then spontaneously fermented and macerated for 20 days.
Then the red wine Arrayán Graciano 2019 was aged for 12 months in 225-litre French oak barrels.
After being bottled, this Crianza red wine was aged for a short period of time before hitting the market.
Pair this organic red wine from Méntrida with meat recipes, rice dishes, cold cuts and medium-aged cheese.
The red wine Arrayán Graciano is deep ruby with some reddish glints.
Loads of ripe black fruit, the defining trait of the Graciano variety, with a splash of liquorice, balsam and a dim note of spices.
This wine of Bodegas Arrayán has a noteworthy acidity and a lively character, with understated fruit, good tannic energy and bite and a long finish with a toasted and spicy aftertaste.
