For the elaboration of this new wine Sierra Cantabria Garnacha, we used 100% Garnacha grapes with a long vegetative cycle, from the oldest vines of San Vicente de la Sonsierra, vineyards that were planted in 1927 and that are still active today, where they have been cared for respecting the environment and that a respectful and organic viticulture has been maintained.The Garnacha vines of the new wine of the Eguren family, Sierra Cantabria Garnacha, have a yield of 31 Hls/Ha.The vinification in a traditional way, a despalillado and a maceration of 21 days in their skins, with daily pumping over, fermentation with autochthonous yeast from the own vineyards of the Sierra Cantabria Winery, malolactic fermentation in oak barrels.
Tasting Notes Sierra Cantabria garnacha
Variety with a long vegetative cycle, with a very Atlantic expression in the Sonsierra area, which in years of good ripening provides identity, complexity and elegance, manifesting itself as a fruity wine, with notes of red fruit and blue flowers, fresh, expressive and balanced. Good finish
