Characteristics of La Multa Garnacha
La Multa Garnacha is a young red wine from Calatayud prepared by The Scottish Volante. It is a single varietal Garnacha.
The grains used for La Multa Garnacha come from old vines between 35 and 50 years old, which are planted on the slopes of Ribota River, about 700 or 800 metres of altitude.
The grapes have a great aromatic concentration thanks to three factors: drainage of strains, low rainfall and high temperature variation between day and night.
After the harvest, the grapes are de-stemmed and passed through a maceration process. La Multa Garnacha is then fermented for about a week with regular pumpings at a controlled temperature of 28 degrees.
Finally, La Multa Garnacha is macerated and bottled. The Scottish Volante is Norrel Robertson, a recognized grower and winemaker. Robertson decided a decade ago to start this new project and create his own wines.
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.
