2018 Valautin Garnacha, Ca' di Mat

2018 Valautin Garnacha, Ca' di Mat

Ref: CADI181
Red  |  Still  |  13% ABV

Having started a project in 2013 in Ribeira Sacra, Galicia, Curro Barreño and Jesús Olivares wanted to explore old vines on the granitic slopes of the Gredos Mountains. They are reviving Garnacha, Albillo and Moscadel vineyards (30-80yrs) at high altitude, 700-850mtrs. Winemaking is low-fi and with indigenous yeasts and whole bunches, at low temperatures to favour a gentle extraction of colour and phenolics.

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

N.B. This is grown at 450 metres on granitic soils. Pigeage – the punching down of the “cap” of skins and stalks – is done by foot.
This is a touch shy at present, but swirling activates aromas of red cherry, nut and dark spices. The palate is simply lovely: cool, crisp and red. There’s superb definition here and the piquant mineral structure, including the most superbly fresh and refreshing tannins. This is a lovely thing all ‘round. Bowes Wine original note

The profile is quite different—this feels cooler, more vertical, very intense and long, with a granite-driven texture. It finishes long and tasty. Amazing!Luis Gutierrez

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained

Sweetness

All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
