Tasting Notes:

Wildly aromatic with notes of wild red fruits and spice . The Syrah brings some esh and freshly ground pepper to the mix, whilst the subtle seasoning of Moristel, Garnacha Blanca and Bobal ( locally known as Provechon) add gentle notes of lemon thyme and other Mediterranean herbs. A classic eld blend from 5 parcels that redenes the concept of Old Vine Garnacha in Aragon.

Winemaker's Notes

EL MONDONGO - the guts, the insides!! When we ferment our single vineyards we use all the parts and parcels. In the case of the 2015 vintage we have assembled a blend of 5 separate vineyard parcels to create an aromatic synergy between old vine Garnacha, Syrah and other indigenous varieties such as Moristel , Bobal and Garnacha Blanca.
