The Cubist, Old Vine Garnacha, Calatayud, Spain 2013
Bold and rich style with smoky spice and dark fruit flavours. From 100-year-old vines planted on dusty, dry slate soils at an altitude of 1,000 metres, it’s a concentrated style, due to the extremely low yields, but it has plenty of freshness to balance it out. Another food contender.
