La Viña Escondida 2015
Spring is here and La Viña Escondida returns. Flowers, fresh fruit, minerality ...
This wine expresses a way of understanding wine as the perfect harmony between the territory, the vineyard and the talent of the winegrower. What the French call terroir.
Wine made with clusters of the hill from an old 90-year-old Garnacha vineyard with granite soil. This peak has its vines exposed to the four cardinal points, thus receiving different exposures to the sun's rays, thus achieving a perfect maturation. Ecological viticulture.
Clusters selection in the vine itself, collection and transport in small volume boxes first thing in the morning.
Cold pre-fermentation maceration, traditional treading during fermentation. Pressing is done in a symbolic way, since they are very light.
The wine is transferred to barrels using a new 2,000-liter French oak cask for 18 months, where it undergoes malolactic fermentation.
Bright and lively ruby red color. The nose shows enormous complexity, we find aromas of cherries, violets, gunpowder, smoked, plums, incense, raspberry, blackberry and well-assembled woods together with mineral sparkles ...
It changes at every stroke of the wrist, always surprising. On the palate it is silky and very fresh, easy to drink, with polished and friendly tannins. It caresses the mouth and leaves us with an intense and explosive memory as well as subtle and elegant. Long, velvety and full of freshness.
You will like… its freshness in the mouth and its persistence that allows you to enjoy all its nuances for a longer time.
An extra… its 94 Parker point rating makes this wine a safe bet.
Did you know that ... the vineyards from which the grapes are obtained to make this wine are more than 90 years old.
