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