Product Description
Details

The Vendrell-Rived winery produces La Miloquera Garnatxa Vella from a single parcel of low-yielding, over 90-year-old Grenache vines.

The parcel is called Finca Les Pedrenyeres, an organically farmed vineyard with sandy-clay and slate soils situated near the village of Marçà, in the heart of DO Montsant

The grapes were hand-picked and carefully selected. Then this Spanish red wine was macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 25 days.

After that, La Miloquera Garnatxa Vella 2020 was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.

The production of this Crianza red wine is ridiculously low: around 250 bottles. Truly a collector's item!

Decant this red wine from Montsant 1 hour before drinking.

Appearance

The red wine La Miloquera Garnatxa Vella is deep ruby with some purple hints.

Nose

This varietal old-vines Grenache encapsulates the essence of the variety. Compelling aromas of kirsch, poached strawberries and morello cherries, with lively remembrances of aromatic herbs and Mediterranean garrigue, subtle spicy and toasted notes, and delicate mineral suggestions.

Palate

This wine from Vendrell-Rived is concentrated, detailed and vibrant, with exultant red fruit, spices and undergrowth, a rich texture and a rock-solid acidity that lifts the wine and carries it all the way to a long finish with a mineral and floral aftertaste.

Our personal opinion

The red wine La Miloquera Garnatxa Vella 2020 proves that Montsant is one of Grenache's absolute top terroirs.

Terroir-orientated Garnacha from Montsant. Darker and deeper than Gredos Garnachas, very honest and balanced, but very young still.
