Product Description
Details

Produced by Bodegas Morca, a brand of Gil Family Estates, Godina Garnacha is a varietal Grenache coming from the DO Campo de Borja, located in the northern Spanish province of Aragón.

The grapes were sorted from vineyards planted on the sides of the Moncayo mountain range. The area has a Continental climate with an Atlantic influence. The Cierzo, a cold north wind, is a key factor there, for it cools the vines during the long, hot summers.

Picked by hand, each plot of grapes was separately fermented in stainless steel tanks. After that, this Spanish red wine was transferred into French oak barrels, where it completed malolactic fermentation.

Finally, Godina Garnacha 2019 was aged for 15 months in the barrels.

This small production Crianza red wine is excellent with cold-cuts, roasted meat and stew recipes.

Nose

Ripe strawberries and amarena cherries, typical of a varietal Grenache wine, with some spicy and earthy notes, and a remembrances of bitter herbs.

Balanced and well defined, this wine from Bodegas Morca is round and gently creamy, with smooth tannins and subdued wooden notes. Solid acidity and long finish with an aftertasted of red berries and spices.

Our personal opinion

The super moreish Godina Garnacha 2019 proves that Grenache is a multifaceted grape variety.

Good quality fruit and some complexity. Oak is a little prominent now, though. Give it some months to integrate.
