Characteristics of La Garnacha Olvidada de Aragón

Garnacha Olvidada de Aragón is a red wine from the DO Calatayud, prepared by Project Garnacha in Spain. This is a personal project of Raúl Acha that relies on researching and selecting varietal Grenache from ancient vineyards that best express the essence of this variety.

La Garnacha, which come from the Garnacha Project in Spain, produce wines with fruity, fresh and easy drinking character, this fits well with the likes of new consumers.

Garnacha Olvidada de Aragón is made from ancient vineyards in the region of Calatayud, at the western end of Aragon. In a wild and barren landscape, continental climate with extreme temperatures, very low in winter and very high in summer, and where rainfall is scarce. An ideal climate to produce excellent Garnacha.

Garnacha Olvidada de Aragón is made from grapes from old Grenache vines planted in glass trellises in 1940. The harvest is done manually during the second week of October as autumn is very favourable for maturation.

Fermentation at less than 25 degrees takes place in concrete tanks of 15,000kg, here they marinate for 17 days. The aging lasts 10 months and is conducted in French oak barrels.

Alcohol: 14.5%
Serve at 16ºC

Tasting notes La Garnacha Olvidada de Aragón

Sight

Intense deep ruby red, garnet rim and bruised reflection. Clean and expressive.

Nose

Intense, projecting the nuances of aging for 10 months in French oak barrels (toasted notes and cocoa). Presence of red fruit.

Taste

Good entry, firm. Roasted aromas, cocoa and berries. Pleasant and ripe tannins express the performance of this old vineyard.

Sight Intense and deep ruby red colour with maroon edges and purple reflections. Clean and bright wine with dense quite slow-falling tears. Nose Good aromatic intensity. Its outstanding nuances of its 10-month ageing in French oak barrels (toasted aromas, notes of roasted coffee and cocoa) give way to red fruit which little by little becomes increasingly intense. Taste Good attack and good initial sensations. This wine shows its liveliness from the very beginning. Its tannins, its acidity and the notes of fruit are perfectly balanced, resulting in a very round set. An easily enjoyable wine.
Sight Intense cherry red colour with purple reflections. Clean and bright wine with good tears. Nose This wine shows an explosion of flavours that emerges in very harmoniously forming a highly seductive aromatic set. Its notes of creamy and sweet spices are released along with a smooth toasted aromas, with fresh notes of ripe red fruit that gains in intensity with the time. The soft touches of herbs and minerals form a good background. Taste Very nice, intense and warm attack which gives way to very well integrated and balanced notes of fruit and wood. It has a very tasty, sweet, wide and well-bodied mid palate. It shows a good acidity and ripe tannins and its good finish leaves sweety aromas of fruit.

Reviews

D.O. Calatayud

Winery Proyecto Garnachas de España

The history and legendary Camino de Santiago to Navarra, with the resulting French and Central European cultural influence in the area, influenced in the Middle Ages the tradition of unique wines, centred on the use of the Garnacha Tinta grape variety. The modernisation of wineries, the careful choice of the vineyards, the incorporation of noble varieties, and the commitment of winemakers seeking more flavour instead of alcohol, has led to a new generation of Calatayud wines, which are fine, elegant and very personal.
