The wine

On pouring it into the glass you get the full force of the aroma. A dark violet colour, opaque, clean and bright. You see yourself reflected on the surface when you look over the edge of the glass. The nose feels full of youth and maturity at the same time, exuding fruit, freshness and elegance. Oak from the barrel is in the background, subtle and refined, showing due respect for the wine's own aromas. On entry, the attack is full-on, completely taking over, like the first kiss, gentle and delicate yet firm and long, very long, it just won't disappear. It leaves a mineral trace, of slate crumbling on Tierga’s frosty nights. The essence of a pure, genuine Garnacha.

Note: This wine does not come under any denomination of origin.

Note: We recommend decanting it for more than an hour before drinking.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The one wine grown outside the limits of the Navarra appellation, closer to Aragón and sold without appellation, is the 2014 Tierga—named after the village where the old Garnacha vines at the foot of the Moncayo Mountain are grown. The vineyard was planted some 80 years ago on decomposed red slate soils, the grapes fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeast and the wine matured in 500-liter French oak barrels for six months. It's a serious, meaty Garnacha combining power and concentration with finesse, ripeness with good fruit, and a salty, food-like sensation that makes you want to eat some good charcuterie with it. There is good freshness and very fine tannins, great balance and focused, clean and defined flavors. This has all the ingredients and balance to develop nicely in bottle. I guess they expect it to do so, as they used a Diam30 closure. 1,000 bottles were filled in December 2016.
