"A very light and delicately fragrant nose with red flowers, red cherries and a leafy, sappy edge. The palate has a succulent array of fresh strawberries and a sleek and juicy, elegant yet firm feel on the palate. Detailed and delicious garnacha here. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold."

"Also bottled and ready for tasting, the 2017 Las Uvas de la Ira shows the progress that started from 2015 (which I also tasted for reference), a wine from the Real de San Vicente village, three from owned vineyards and one purchased. This new vinification is inspired by the reds of Ganevat and Occhipinti, with some 35% of the bunches pressed and vinified in white, so there are fewer skins and stems in the vat and more liquid and the cap is totally immersed in the wine. Other 30% of the wine was inspired by Charme from Niepoort, which sees a very short but extracted vinification, and the rest is vinified traditionally. He thought this village needed a twist to gain in freshness and drinkability. It results in a very elegant and fresh wine, especially in a warm vintage like this 2017, with an impressive nose, open, very aromatic and floral, with citrus freshness within the style of the vintage. The palate showed very round, polished and elegant tannins, which makes it very approachable. It really transcends the vintage. I retasted the 2015, an even hotter vintage, and none of the three (including 2016) showed any heat. Remarkable. 11,500 bottles produced. It was bottled in August 2018."
"Las Uvas de la Ira, or “The Grapes of Wrath” is a cuvée of Garnacha from several sites on granitic sands near the village of El Real de San Vicente. The vine age of these parcels averages about 60 years-old. The same care is taken with this “entry level” wine as with his single vineyard cuvées – after harvesting the grapes by hand the fruit is fermented in three vats: a direct pressing of the grapes and natural fermentation as a white wine, a short fermentation and extractive maceration, and a traditional whole cluster fermentation with long gentle maceration. The three vats are then blended and aged in foudre for 12 months." - Importer
