The arid land of Calatayud is home to precious old vine Garnacha that produces “some of the best value wines from Spain, if not the world” (Decanter). With its fresh, uplifting raspberry fruit and spicy notes, this red shows modern Spain at its best.
Spain’s old bush vines should be regarded as national treasure – they don’t produce many bunches of grapes, but what they do has really concentrated flavour and richness. And it's that old vine magic that shines in this smooth Garnacha. It’s named after a festival that takes place in San Roque each year, when locals dress in colours representing their tribe or club (peña). A sea of purple represents the growers, vineyard workers and winemakers, all celebrating the grape they call their own – Garnacha. Norrel Robertson MW (known locally as El Escocés Volante or ‘the Flying Scotsman’) works at a modern cellar and made this wine for us. Enjoy this full, smooth, juicy red with lamb or a bean casserole and become the newest member of Peña!
"Considering it's a hefty 15%, this is very smooth and far too easy to drink!"
