"There is a new 2015 OGV Old Garnacha Vine, sourced from different plots at 800 to 1,000 meters altitude on slate and clay soils, and fermented in concrete vats followed by six months in second-use French and new American oak barrels. It feels like a super Albada, subtle and elegant, quite harmonious and balanced, offering more balsamic notes with time in the glass. The palate revealed juicy fruit and clean flavors with an earthy touch that makes it very tasty. 24,200 bottles were filled in February 2017.

Virgen de la Sierra is the cooperative of the village Villarroya de la Sierra in Calatayud created back in 1954. They work with 230 hectares of vineyards and produce around half a million bottles per year. Some great values here." (WA)

Winery Notes:
Dark ruby color with shades of purple. Sexy and silky palate, spiceaccented blackberry and cherry aromas and a brilliant ruby color with violet notes. This distinctly Garnacha wine finishes with excellent length and warm tannins.
