Bodegas Breca Breca 2015
The vines for this wine, in particular, were planted between 1900 and 1940. 100% Garnacha de Aragón, the oldest clone of Garnacha (Grenache) in the world. Garnacha (Grenache) was first cultivated in this northeastern corner of Spain and transferred across the Mediterranean by the Kingdom of Aragón. As Spain's highest altitude region for the production of Garnacha, the temperature swings are radical. This produces wines with deep color and character, as well as lively acidity. The wine is characterised by aromas of ripe black fruit compote, overlaid with spices such as black pepper. There is an obvious minerality to the wine, proceeding from vineyards’ diverse range of soil types. The soils range from iron rich red slate and clay to black slate.
Wine Spectator#29 WS Top 100! Round, smooth and dense, this red shows harmony and balance. Plum and blackberry flavors mingle with black olive, toast and mineral notes, supported by well-integrated tannins and fresh acidity, leaving a lovely floral finish. Drink now through 2027.
