At a Glance

Ethereal and fruity, this wine is bursting with strawberry and raspberry flavours. With grapes hailing from gnarly 90 year old vines this is an intense, luscious Grenache that leaves you wanting more. Made in our central London winery using whole-bunch fermentation and old oak barrels. Try it with herby, porky sausages and creamy mash doused in rich red onion gravy.

The grapes are grown here
 
Lovely sweet, juicy and focused with ripe blackberry and black cherry fruit ... amazing raspberry intensity on the palate with some grip and nice acidity ... Pure and vibrant. 92/100

In Depth

After a long, hot day scouring the Calatayud region for the perfect Grenache vineyard, we finally found the holy grail we were looking for just outside the remote village of Acered, 900 metres above sea level with sensational, twisted 90 year old bush vines. This was it. Bush vines are low and leafy, allowing the grapes to be shaded from the hot Spanish sun. The impressive age of the vines means that their yields are low, and the grapes intense and concentrated.

In the winery, the grapes were hand-sorted and fermented. The wine was aged in neutral oak barrels to ensure that the delicate, pure varietal characteristics were preserved.
