Garnacha Crianza, Finca Antigua, La Mancha, Spain 2016
Regular price £11.50
The Martínez Bujanda family acquired Finca Antigua at the beginning of 1999. Beforehand, they had been involved in wine production in the region of Rioja but wanted to diversify and also shine a light on what they thought to be one of Spain’s most misunderstood regions.
La Mancha is a sprawling region but the family fell in love with the Finca Antigua plot, located between Cuenca and Toledo.
Here, they began using the expertise they had gained during their time in Rioja to produce wines which quickly became among the flagship of the region. There is no question that their wines highlight the value for money which can be found in Spain’s lesser known viticultural areas.
Garnacha Crianza 2016
High aromatic intensity with initial hints of mineral, violets and ripe red berries. Notes of Indian ink and subtle nuances of new oak, tobacco and breadcrumbs. In the mouth, a silky attack, fresh with a velvety, full mouthfeel.
