Finca Antigua Garnacha 2017

Producer: Bujanda
Vintage: 2017
Production Area: La Mancha
Type: Red Table Wine
Alcohol: 13.5%
Sugar: 1.3g/l
Grape Varieties: Garancha-100
Color: Medium-high depth, rich purple colour with violet rim and shiny sparkles. Marked, tinted and dense glycerol tears with a noticeable silkiness to the eye.
Aroma: Floral aromas (azalea flowers, russian-olive) and of undergrowth (pine bark, fallen leaves and crushed holly leaves), very complex in reference to the varietal aromas. Its ageing in oak lends light, toasted hints of tobacco and fine woods like walnut.
Taste: Intense presence but with a smooth and silky sensation from the beginning. Although it has a very fine tannin, this wine has great backbone and energy (great capacity for bottle-ageing). Fresh, long and tasty finish.
Cellaring Potential: 7-12 years
Food Matching: Matured sheep and goat´s milk cheeses. White meats like grilled turkey and chicken. Fantastic with charcoal-grilled veal without sauce and with the Madrid one-pot pulse (chickpeas) and meat dishes.
Vinification: Stainless Steel Fermentation, five day maceration, malolactic fermentation was performed
Aging: 5 months in American Oak barrels 225L
