LA GARDEA GARNACHA 2014 (D.O. Campo de Borja)
Winery: LA GARDEA
Type: 100% Garnacha
The origins of this unique estate began in 1948 when our founding father, Señor Ruberte, began producing wine in his bodega, ́La Magallonera ́. Our Old Vines Garnacha, planted in 1958, trace back to the same era.
Garnacha is thought to be native to this part of Spain and from there it has traveled all over the world. LA GARDEA is aged in the 500 year old cave that the winery owns in the Moncayo mountains.
Fresh berries, violets and lots of spices come up in the first notes that jump out of the glass. Round and soft, the wine shows some notes of rockrose, earth and smokiness in the finish. A true delight and perhaps one of the best value wines in our entire portfolio.
100% hand harvested Garnacha
Aged for 5 months in used American and French oak barrels inside the 500 year old cave of El Moncayo mountain.
