Product Description
Details

Made from low-yielding Grenache vines, Morca Garnacha is one of the top range products of Bodegas Morca, a brand of the Gil Family Estates.

This varietal Spanish red wine is produced in the DO Campo de Borja, Aragón. The vines are grown on the sides of the Moncayo mountain range. The area has very cold winters and blisteringly hot summers. The Cierzo, a cold north wind, blows constantly throughout the year.

Traditionally vinified, the hand-harvested grapes were fermented under controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. Each plot of grapes was individually vinified. After that, Morca Garnacha 2018 was transferred into French oak barrels, where it underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged for 20 months.

Finally, the best samples were blended and bottled. This Crianza red wine rested for a short period of time in the cellar before its commercial release.

Pair this limited production Grenache wine with game dishes, cured cheese, cold cuts and stews.

Appearance

The red wine Morca Garnacha is deep ruby with a purple rim.

Nose

This is a remarkably deep varietal Grenache. More sensous than austere, though, with lively aromas of dried cherries, strawberry candy, dry earth, cedar and tobacco over a mineral and balsamic background.

Palate

This is a bold red wine from Bodegas Morca. Ripe and concentrated, with layers upon layers of fruit and luxurious spices, ripe tanins and a top-notch acidity. Very long finish with an earthy and balsamic aftertaste. 

Our personal opinion

A noteworthy Grenache, Morca Garnacha 2018 will captivate the lovers of this yummiest of Spanish varieties.
