Bodegas Breca Garnacha de Fuego Old Vines 2015

SKU 17907


The grapes come from old vines vineyards, 60-80 years-old, with yields of 2T/Ha and located high on the hillsides, 3,000 ft above sea level, around Calatayud. The vineyards are planted in principally decomposed slate and gravely clay soils. Even though there is very little rainfall in the region (around 350ml per year), the clay is at depth and allows for the vines to obtain moisture and be dry grown.

Wine AdvocateTwo gorgeous reds from Breca include the generic 2015 Garnacha De Fuego from Aragon. This comes from a large regional vineyard spread over many different terroirs. The vines are respectably old, all having been planted between the end of World War II (1945) and 1976. The wine is 100% Grenache from the oldest clone of Grenache in the world and the one that was adopted by France in the Rhône Valley and the Languedoc-Roussillon. The wine spent its entire life in cement and stainless-steel tanks before being bottled unfiltered. A lovely sleeper from Jorge Ordoñez Selections, this wine show loads of black raspberry, cherry, liqueur notes, licorice, a lush medium-bodied mouthfeel, beautiful purity and a juicy texture. Drink it over the next several years. It is a remarkable wine value!
