An astounding value, this young Spanish red wine is produced by Jorge Ordóñez in Calatayud.
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.
The red wine Garnacha de Fuego has a bright, high cherry-coloured robe with a purple rim.
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.
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.
