Azul y Garanza "Naturaleza Salvaje" Garnacha '17

While Tempranillo has overtaken Grenache in the number of planted hectares in Spain, the latter still plays a prominent role in the Spanish wine landscape. 

Grenache has the unique ability to "take the punishment" of harsh and extreme climates, and still produce ripe fruit. Drought, wind, hot summers, cold winters, this vine can withstand the extremes of nature.

Grenache also really takes on the personality of its vineyard, so whether you are talking about the varietal from Montsant, Priorat, Navarra, Campo de Borja or Sierra de Gredos, it is almost always different.

We are excited to show off this 100% Grenache from the team at Azul y Garanza. The dynamic trio behind the wines works with grapes from the Bardenas Reales Natural Park. Here you find a biologically diverse ecosystem, which plays into the aromas and flavors you find in the wine.

"Naturaleza Salvaje" is produced from 40 year-old Garnacha vines just on the outside of the Bardenas Reales Natural Park. The vineyard are situated at 550 meters of sea level, which yields grapes with good natural acidity.

The grapes are fermented with natural yeast in concrete tanks and aged in a combination of amphora and neutral barrel for six months. 

The 2017 shows off some of those ripe red fruit notes that you'd expect from Garnacha, but is well framed by other notes such as dried herbs, bitter chocolate and mineral. One can just enjoy a glass on its own, or pair it with roasted chicken with root vegetables.
