The wine

La Maldita Revolution is made with Grenache Noir grapes from the hillsides around Tudelilla, a small village well-known for the quality of this variety. The vines were planted in 2000 in six hectares of poor stone-covered sandy soil, where only the under-rated Grenache seems able to survive, producing low yields of this cherished grape. Sited at an altitude of 725 metres, the conditions are ideal for the fruit to ripen slowly and maintain its freshness.

The vines are grown using organic agricultural methods although the wine does not bear the official organic certificate. The gently-crushed grapes undergo a cold maceration process for 12 days with light pump-overs and a malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels. The resulting wine ages in 500-litre used French oak barrels for 12 months, creating a perfect integration of the barrels' aromas.

La Maldita Revolution is a fresh, fine, elegant and aromatic wine. It displays an attractive cherry-red colour with violet glints, and soothing herbal and spicy notes appear quickly in the nose before blending in with aromas of perfectly ripened fruit and flowers. It has a medium-bodied palate with a notable strength and a wonderfully balanced acidity. A wine whose pure flavours and exceptionally fine tannins make it a pleasure to drink and leave you with a long lingering aftertaste. Mineral hints, reminiscent of chalk and the dusty vineyard stones are present throughout the experience.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

La Maldita is no longer part of a range from Vivanco; it's a separate project that keeps growing, and there is a new red, the 2018 Garnacha Revolution. It was produced with grapes from six hectares of the variety planted in 2000 in the higher part of Tudelilla, a village renowned for its Garnacha. The vines are at 725 meters in altitude, and the grapes ripen slowly and keep good freshness. Furthermore, 2018 was a cooler vintage, very apt to produce fine, elegant, perfumed and fresh reds. This plot is stony with sand, and the vines are organically farmed, even if the wine does not carry a certification. The lightly crushed grapes fermented in oak vats with a 12-day maceration and soft pumping over. The wine matured in used 500-liter French oak barrels for 12 months. The oak is perfectly integrated into the wine, which comes through as pure, elegant and floral with a medium-bodied palate where there's great purity of flavors, very fine tannins and a long, clean and persistent finish. 6,300 bottles produced. It was bottled in November 2019.
