2018 VILLA ROYA GARNACHA CALATAYUD, SPAIN

$18.00 $18.00

Villa Roya Garnacha is the manifestation of ancient bush vines grown in the red hills of Calatayud, Spain. The vine’s natural essence was made lucid by Master Sommelier Emmanuel Kemiji’s precise winemaking methods, including; 100% de-stemming and week-long pre-fermentative maceration in concrete. The resulting wine has candied blue and red fruits, vibrant acidity, and remarkable balance. At $18, this delicious drinker should be a constant in your backyard this year.

Calatayud is a DOP (denominación de origen protegida) in Aragon, Northern Spain. The region has stoney, nutrient-deficient soils and a Continental climate with hot, dry summers and cool winters, which proves ideal for ripening Garnacha. Robert Parker once wrote that “Calatayud has good potential, perhaps is the zone capable of producing the finest, most elegant wines in Aragón.”

Villa Roya works with many of the region’s oldest vineyards, primarily sourced from higher-elevation hillside sites in the Southernmost part of the appellation. Emmanuel ages the Garnacha for six months in oak and two more in concrete tanks on its natural yeasts, developing its unique character.
