The wine

Garum is a serious and elegant wine, almost Bordeaux-like. Merlot, the main actor in the blend, brings no excessively green sensations with it, a feature which often occurs in climates which are too warm and where grapes ripen quickly. Garum's Merlot vines hydrate thanks to air moisture and grow at their own pace with no haste or demands, enjoying the leisurely pace of life in the area.

What does this wine taste like?

Garum displays a deep and elegant cherry-red colour, and its soothing yet spicy nose has clear hints of undergrowth and liquorice over extremely ripe black fruit. Sensations of grape skins and the toasted flavours of its barrel staves, rough tannins and a reminiscence of coffee lightly sprinkled with cocoa powder. It wears its strength and drive with pride; a tannic yet pleasant wine, bordering on sweet according to some drinkers. Syrah, Petit Verdot and a small amount the now-recovered Tintilla de Rota grape, complement Merlot, a variety originally from the Right Bank of Bordeaux, adding juiciness and spices to the aromatic blend.

Bodegas Luis Pérez

Bodegas Luis Pérez

Luis Pérez Rodríguez is a well-known oenologist in the Jerez region and, with this bodega and the support of his whole family, he has restored the making of fine quality red wines, upholding a tradition that had lasted not merely for some time but for three thousand years. In 2002, he acquired the Vistahermoso estate, right in the heart of Jerez's vineyard country, and began producing his wines, ones that were deemed 'signature'. They are small-scale, hand-crafted creations,...
