Garnacha de Arrayán VT Castilla y Leon

00170514

Garnacha de Arrayán is arguably this Central Spain bodega’s ensign creation by winemaker Maite Sanchez. An elegant Garnacha representative of the slate hills of Cebreros in the Sierra de Gredos mountain range. Same as sister wine La Suerte, subsequent vintages of Garnacha de Arrayán have consistently achieved top positions in tasting rankings of relevance. This one has been rated with 93 points by Pedro Ballesteros, MW as published by Decanter magazine in March 2018. Garnacha naturally produces easy-drinking wines with a balanced acidity, red berry notes and not too much body or colour. In this case, the altitude and soil contribute with an appealing turf aftertaste hint.
