ABOUT THE WINE
When Calatayud achieved DO status in 1990, it became Aragon’s second-largest quality wine-producing region after Cariñena. Since then, it has been upgrading and perfecting its wines, with both cooperative and private bodegas undertaking progressive improvements. Vinedos de Altura is one of those talented, progressive cooperatives, with 90-year-old Garnacha vines in the mountains of Calatayud. Following manual harvest to ensure the highest quality, this wine is an excellent expression of the region.
A captivating, deep cherry hue entices the eye. The aroma melds an enticing medley of dark fruits and ripe red berries with superb minerality, warm spices, and aromatic balsamic undertones. Twelve months in French oak barrels lend complexity, giving way to a luscious, full-bodied experience. The palate is rounded and vibrant, with refreshing elegance and silky tannins. A harmonious, enduring, and utterly gratifying finish awaits.
Savour this delightful wine alongside a succulent sirloin or a delectable T-bone steak. Alternatively, enhance your culinary journey with wild game or a carefully curated, mature cheese board to showcase the wine's intricate flavours.
