Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml
The young 50/50 blend of Garnacha and Tempranillo from the zone of Alfaro in Rioja is the 2019 La Vendimia. It was scheduled to be bottled after mid-July 2020, after aging in oak vats and barrels for four months to add some complexity while preserving the freshness and primary character of the wine. It has a nose that combines the floral character of the Garnacha and the more serious profile of Tempranillo, with the two being quite integrated. It's juicy and lively, medium to full-bodied, with 14.3% alcohol, reflecting the heat and drought of the year. It has attractive aromas and flavors that are refined and elegant, gravitating toward floral and red fruit notes, and with very fine tannins that give it a silky texture. The mouthfeel is quite soft, with integrated acidity; it doesn't reflect the extreme conditions of the year and comes through as nicely balanced. There will be 337,000 bottles of this vintage.
