CARINENA

Located in the Ebro Valley hovering a little further south-east than Rioja and Navarra, the DO of Cariñena is planted with around 16,000 hectares of vines, distributed amongst approximately 2,000 growers. The continental climate and extremes of temperature from daytime to nighttime play a significant role in the characteristic intensity of the wines from Cariñena. The most widely planted grape is Garnacha Tinta (aka Grenache), which thrives on the limestone and rock soils and, having undergone rapid development throughout the 1990s, many wines now have much greater balance and refinement than has previously been associated with area.

TASTING NOTES

Yellow with green hues; clean and bright. This wine particularly stands out for its great aromatic intensity, with marked hints of stone fruit (peaches) and white fruit (ripe apples and quinces) against a citrus background of lemon tree leaves. Big, flavoursome and fresh in the mouth, with a well-integrated acidity. Fruity and particularly persistent finish.

TASTING NOTES

The nose opens with warm earthy tones. Appealing spice sits alongside dried peel notes and hightoned fruit over a hint of leather The fruit is forward, and a touch juicier than in the past, underpinned by the same spicy notes found on the nose.
