Product Description
Details

The wine Honoro Vera from Calatayud is a single varietal Grenache coming from old, extremely low-yielding vines grown at altitudes between 700 and 1000 metres above sea level. 

Vinified in stainless steel tanks, where it also completed malolactic fermentation, this Spanish red wine was aged for a brief period of 2 months in French oak barrels.

Produced by Bodegas Ateca, Honoro Vera 2018 is an exceptional value.

Also known as Honoro Vera Garnacha, this wine shows the unique personality of the old Aragón Grenache vines.

Additional Information
Appearance

The Spanish red wine Honoro Vera has an intense, bright cherry-coloured robe with a purple rim.

Nose

Sweet, pleasant notions of red fruit, along with fresh flowers and subtle herbal hints, typical of a young red wine. This Grenache from Calatayud also shows some delicate touches of spices and toast.

Palate

The varietal character of this wine by Bodega Ateca is quite distinct. Red fruit, spices and balsam, an overall sensation of freshness and youth, with a medium body, a tight acidity and some crunchy tannins. Honoro Vera Garnacha has a medium finish, with remembrances of spices, balsam and, again, red fruit.

Our personal opinion

Another excellent value by the Ateca winery, a brand of the Gil Family, the Grenache wine Honoro Vera 2018 is easy and pleasurable.
