Details

An astounding value, this young Spanish red wine is produced by Jorge Ordóñez in Calatayud.

The wine Garnacha de Fuego by Bodegas Breca is made from old Grenache vines planted between 1925 and 1945 on the hills surrounding the winery's premises.

Grown in soils composed of slate and quartzite, the plants are perched at altitudes around 1,000 metres above sea level.

Manually harvested and carefully selected, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel and concrete tanks, and then macerated for two weeks.

After that, Garnacha de Fuego 2018 was aged for 2 months in those same containers. It was bottled unfiltered and only gently clarified.

Drink this old-vines Grenache from Calatayud up to 2022.

Additional Information

Appearance

The red wine Garnacha de Fuego has a bright, high cherry-coloured robe with a purple rim.

Nose

A pure expression of fruit, this red wine by Jorge Ordóñez suggests some intense notes of red berries with some floral overtones over a dim, balsamic and earthy background.

Palate

This young red wine is smooth and gentle, with an intensity that is never overpowering. Jammy fruit, some spicy touches and some mineral remembrances. This wine by Bodegas Breca has some lively tannins and a medium, pleasant finish.

Our personal opinion

Quite astonishing considering its price, Garnacha de Fuego 2018 pairs very well with hearty meat recipes.
