Country: Spain Region: Navarra
Varietal: Graciano, Garnacha
Vintage: 2011 Colour: Red Style: Dry
Producer: Finca Manzanos
You're looking at fancy Spanish red, from award-winning Finca Manzanos producers, that is 'Rioja' in everything but name. The soil, flavours, expertise and appearance all spring from classic Rioja influence, but the vineyard itself is in Navarra (just next door!).
Ageing Potential: 2 Years
The style is soft and approachable with rich helpings of stewed fruit, lined with freshness (thanks to its youth). A charming representation of why this part of Spain is famous for producing one of the most desirable styles of red out there.
