Product Description
Details

Produced by the Viñedos del Jalón winery, Las Pizarras is made from over 60-year-old Grenache grapevines. They are planted in slate and gravel soils at an altitude over 600 metres, in an area belonging to the DO Calatayud.

Selected on site and in the cellar, the grapes were cold-soaked and fermented in stainless steel tanks. After that, this Spanish red wine was transferred into in 2nd year French oak barrels, where it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for just one month, so as to preserve the terroir imprint of this old-vines Grenache.

We suggest that you aerate Las Pizarras 2016 15-30 minutes before drinking

Appearance

The red wine Las Pizarras has an intense cherry colour with a garnet rim.

Nose

This wine of Viñedos del Jalón has an enticing nose. Loads of red fruit and ripe black fruit. Some balsamic nuances, notes of exotic spices, dim mineral undertones and some floral touches.

Palate

Thanks to the unobtrusive ageing, this Grenache from Calatayud conveys the rugged Aragón terroir in a transparent way. Loads of red fruit with a deep mineral core, mild tannins, excellent acidity, and a long finish.

Our personal opinion

Utterly enjoyable, Las Pizarras 2016 is a rather interesting Grenache from Aragón.

Value
This Garnacha born in slate soils feels super authentic, intense and deep. Minerality is very present and it gives the wine a special touch.
