Paco García Experiencia 1 Garnacha 2011 is a single varietal Grenache wine belonging to the "Experiencia" collection.
Every year, the "Experiencia" Collection of the Bodega Paco García winery will feature a unique wine.
In this first release, the aim of the winery was to produce a truly terroir-oriented wine that showed the remarkable qualities of its high-altitude grenache vines.
Produced in the Rioja DO, the grapes were meticulously harvested and vinified, and subsequently aged for 12 months in 2nd year French oak barrels.
Experiencia nº1 Paco García is a welcome addition to the Paco García winery portfolio.
Very bright, clean cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.
Notes of red berries, black pepper, blue flowers, Cointreau liquor, cinnamon and clove over a balsamic background nuanced by some lactic touches.
Fresh and savoury. Spices, fruit, a sense of place and a clear definition. Fresh acidity, mild tannins and long, slightly bitter finish.
