Characteristics of El Puño Garnacha
El Puño Garnacha is a wine produced by the El Escocés Volante winery in Calatayud.
This winery, located in Calatayud, is owned by the Scottish winemaker, Norrel Robertson.
El Puño Garnacha 2009 is 100% made from Grenache. The grapes come from very old vines, aged between 70 and 100 years, located in the village of Acered, southeast of Calatayud.
The vineyards are located at an altitude of 1000m and are planted on soils of slate and quartzite. The local climate is continental with extreme temperature fluctuations and a low annual rainfall of 200/300 mm.
To prepare El Puño Garnacha 2009, a maceration is carried out cold, immediately after destemming. Then the juice is fermented at a controlled temperature in oak barrels of 500l. After the fermentation process, El Puño Garnacha 2009 is aged for 16 months in the same oak barrels of 500l.

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.

Norrel Robertson is "el escocés volante", a Master of Wine and flying winemaker who in 2003 chose Calatayud as a place of residence to be able to develop oenology in Spain and southern France. He ended up starting his own project, focusing on the Grenache and Calatayud. He considers that there is no other country with such richness and diversity of Grenaches as Spain, and those of the area of Aragón, where he works, offer an infinite range of soils, altitudes and orientations.
