Crushed & Cured
Laventura Rioja Garnacha, Laventura Bodega y Viñedos, Rioja, 2021
It has a pale ruby colour with primary fruit aromas of red fruit such as red plum, strawberry and red cherry. Secondary aromas of brioche due to the lees contact and ageing for one year in barrel. The palate is light and textured with a soft tannin. Good acidity, body and length.
Naturally fermented in concrete tanks and aged for a year in large old French oak barrels to preserve all that elegant Garnacha fruit. The Oak is to help with the stability of the wine and must not impart any flavour to the wine.
Garnacha from vineyards in Tudelilla (Rioja Oriental) located at 660 meters of altitude, which gently descend on the southeastern slope of the Sierra La Hez. The Mediterranean climate that helps the ripening of the Garnacha, combined with the altitude and the stony soils with good drainage allow us to produce a complex but elegant wine.
