Details

The wine Honoro Vera from Calatayud is a single varietal Grenache coming from old, extremely low-yielding vines grown at altitudes between 700 and 1000 metres above sea level. 

Vinified in stainless steel tanks, where it also completed malolactic fermentation, this Spanish red wine was aged for a brief period of 2 months in French oak barrels.

Produced by Bodegas Ateca, Honoro Vera 2017 should be enjoyed over the next 2 years.

Additional Information

Appearance

The wine Honoro Vera has an intense, bright cherry-coloured robe with a purple rim.

Nose

Sweet, pleasant notions of red fruit, along with fresh flowers and subtle herbal hints, typical of a young red wine. This Grenache from Calatayud also shows some delicate touches of spices and toast.

Palate

The varietal character of this wine by Bodega Ateca is quite distinct. Red fruit, spices and balsam, an overall sensation of freshness and youth, with a medium body, a tight acidity and some crunchy tannins. This red wine from Aragón has a medium finish, with remembrances of spices, balsam and, again, red fruit.

Our personal opinion

Another excellent value by the Gil Family, the Grenache wine Honoro Vera 2017 is easy and pleasurable.
