Splendidly cheap and flavourful, old-vine Spanish red.

Bob TyrerThe Sunday Times

Brilliant reds include...Cruz de Piedra Garnacha, an old vine Garnacha with reach and ripeness; a real wine.

Victoria MooreThe Guardian

Winemaking

The grapes have been destalked, crushed and fermented for 15 days at a maximum temperature of 28C. After a maceration of 20 days and the malolactic fermentation was finished the wine was racked. The Garnacha grapes are sourced from old bush vines in the hills above the village of Villaroya de la Sierra. The average age of the vines is of 60 years. The age of the vines contributes to the excellent intensity of this Garnacha.The longevity of the vines is due to the cold winters and high altitude of the vines (600-900m).
