Rico Nuevo Garnacha 2020

Get to know: Rico Nuevo Garnacha

Tasting Note

A bright modern wine from a Spanish region that is developing quickly. Leafy and earthy nose with notes of cherries, red apples, raspberry and watermelon hints. Palate medium-bodied, juicy, fruity yet well balanced and multilayered with a slight mineral touch, refreshing acidity and floral notes. Sweet, fresh and effortless to drink without thinking too much but without losing the identity of the place. Bottled unfiltered so may contain sediment.

Try this with Spanish Iberico pork or stuffed bell peppers.

Kate Says

""This juicy and refreshing Garnacha is a great example of how this grape can produce expressive and elegant wines that are full of character and charm. Rico Nuevo is among a new wave of Spanish winemakers in this region and areone to watch. I'd enjoy this with a few salty tapas dishes." "

Producer Info

Rico Nuevo is a family owned and operated vineyard in Cebreros which is in the southeast of the province of Ávila (Castilla Y Leon). The name comes from the nickname given to their great grandfather Felipe "Rico Nuevo" who was a farmer, cattle rancher and a great wine producer. Juanan 'Rico Nuevo' now takes care of the winemaking and along with the rest of the team seeks to communicate through its wines the marked character of this land, and the way of doing and thinking of the people who have worked on it.  

Grenache vines are at the heart of their production as the grape of the region. (85% of vines across the 35 municipalities that make up the Cebreros are Grenache.) They produce wines that are characterised by elegance with a tasty balance between alcohol and acidity, fine depth of flavour, lively with good ageing potential. They farm organically and seek to maintain a circular ecosystem. 

This young Grenache is made using fruit from a selection of plots from different parts of the Alto Alberche Valley that draw the Grenache on granite soils. ⠀ 
It is fermented in stainless steel and without going through ageing in wood and bottled unfiltered.
