Cifras Tinto Rioja 2017

Case of 6 bottles.

100% Garnacha ; the grapes are hand-harvested, in small boxes, from the 24 ha La Huerta vineyard. The vines have an average age of 25+ years, and some are over 100 years old. No pesticides are used. The soil is shallow clay, and the exposure is south; perfect conditions for heat-loving Garnacha.

Alcoholic fermentation in cement tanks, then 90% of the wine is aged in an egg-shaped concrete vat, while the rest is aged in 2nd-passage French-oak barrels. Alc./vol.: 13.5%.

Approximately 7000 bottles produced.

Tasting note: Bright cherry-red colour, with a slight purple rim. Aromas and flavours of dark, wild fruits - cherry, raspberry, and blackberry- with notes of mocha, herbs, and caramel. Medium-bodied, dry, balanced, fruit notes, with a long, finish.

Pairings:Grilled and braised meat dishes, rice dishes, tapas, and barbeque ribs. Good match with rich and strong flavours.
