El Garbi, Tinto, Terra Alta, Spain, 2021
(at Weekday Wines Tasting, 21 Aug 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2024
A fresh juicy Garnacha Tinta (with 5% of Garnacha Blanca) grown sustainably in cool Terra Alta. El Garbi is the warm African wind that blows through the vineyard. Vibrant red fruit on the palate; pure and mineral, with bright acidity to balance soft tannins. Judicious ageing (seven months in used French oak) adds hints of spice. Lovely match for a plate of charcuterie.
