2018 Ver Sacrum Garnacha Barrancas (750ml)

Grenache from Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina

2018 Ver Sacrum Garnacha Barrancas

The super-pale red 2018 Garnacha was produced with grapes from a vineyard panted in Los Chacayes at 1,100 meters above sea level on very rocky soils at 10,000 plants per hectare. It fermented with 25% full clusters in a semi-carbonic maceration fashion for four days with indigenous yeasts in 3,000-liter concrete eggs. The wine is pale and delicate, a little in the style of the Comando G wines from Gredos in Spain, matured with equal parts in used 225-liter oak barrel and concrete for six months. It has a perfumed nose of flowers and wild berries with some notes of Mediterranean herbs. It has moderate alcohol and mellow acidity and comes through as harmonious and velvety, with pungent flavors on the finish. 12,100 bottles produced.
