Tasting note Camino de Caza
Full-bodied wine with a powerful aroma of vanilla, ripe red fruit and a slight spiciness. The taste turns fragrant and round and ends with a smooth aftertaste, soft tannic oak.
A good companion of game dishes and spicy dishes must be powerful. With full, ripe tannins, so that flavorintense sauces also combine well. The odor intensity is also important, because it determines to a large extent the length and quality of the aftertaste. In the Spanish town of Almansa we found the perfect and affordable wine that meets these requirements with winemaker Juan Pablo Bonete. Made from 70% garnacha tintorera and 30% monastrell grapes, both indigenous grapes from the Spanish wine region Almansa. The climate here is particularly suitable for making quality wines. The winters are cold and there is enough rain in the spring, so irrigation of the vineyard is not necessary in many cases even in summer. The grapes come from sixty to seventy years old vines in high vineyards. The vines (pre-phylloxera) have deep roots that can easily reach the underground water reserves. Due to the high location of the vineyards - 850 to 900 meters - it is considerably cooler in summer than in the flat areas, towards the coast near Valencia and Alicante. And as you may know, a cool location in a warm area gives a longer, even and better ripening of the grapes. With an average production of only one bottle per vine, the yield in the vineyard is particularly low. This ensures a lot of flavor concentration in the grapes and beautiful, soft tannins. The garnacha matures for fourteen months in barrels of 300 liters of American oak and the monastrell in French Allier oak. This is followed by the assembly, bottling and further ripening in the bottle. The result is a beautiful, full and structured red wine with ripe, soft-tasting tannins and a seductive influence of the maturation.
Tip: decant the wine an hour before pouring so that the fragrance can develop optimally.
