SINGLE ESTATE WINE • RED WINE GARNACHA
Appearance. There is no other word that better defines this wine. In fact, the high temperatures secreted by the river pebbles that cover the entire floor of the vineyard and the proximity of the river provide freshness and an elegant acidity that is incomparable in La Fonollosa. Capricious fate, which offers us this wonderful opportunity just twenty years after our winemaker passed through the French Côte du Rhone area, just in his first steps into the world of oenology. In this region of southeastern France, the garnachas on river pebbles stand out and their wines have become a world icon for their finesse and elegance. Nice coincidence, right?
Its harvest is manual and it is aged in new oak barrels for 17 months, always trying to minimize intervention and achieving a predominant varietal expression. Its structure is low giving us the most elegant sensations of finesse and freshness.

Bouquet: It transports us to wild black fruits such as blackberries or candied plums. We also usually find nuances of mineral character and a soft bitter orange profile.
