About

92+

The unoaked red 2018 Microcósmico Garnacha was produced with grapes from old vines grown on slopes with slate soils at 650 to 700 meters in altitude in the village of Jarque. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and 20% whole clusters that were foot trodden and matured in underground concrete vats for one year. This has depth and complexity that transcends an unoaked wine, with the higher altitude notes of wild herbs, keeping great balance in the palate. There is moderate alcohol, great freshness and complexity. I think this could be the benchmark for a naked Garnacha from Aragón, clearly different from Gredos or Priorat. 23,350 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2020.

90 Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media

Lurid ruby-red. Bright and energetic on the nose, displaying spice-accented red fruit and floral qualities and a hint of white pepper. Juicy, focused and appealingly sweet, offering jammy raspberry and cherry flavors that show no rough edges. Fine-grained tannins shape a long, smooth, focused finish that emphatically echoes the red berry note.
