We have run out of stock for this item.

A new entry from our ever increasing 'value reds' section.  We have sold a huge amount of Anciano wines over the years and now comes their Garnacha.

"From un-irrigated, low-yielding vineyards fanned by coastal sea breezes. Includes 10% tempranillo and 5% monastrell. A bold, intense and pleasantly rustic red with cassis, plum, berry, charcuterie, dark chocolate, and wood-smoke flavours supported by round, ripe tannins. A rich, savoury wine that offers great value at this price." 90/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, August 2022

"Founded in 1945, Bodega La Viña is an avant-garde wine company, and is one of the leading wineries in Valencia. Located in the Valencian town of La Font de la Figuera, its superb location between the Mediterranean and the Meseta plateau, gives its wines impressive character thanks to the sun, sea breeze, dry climate, cold winters and altitude.

Terres dels Alforins is a fertile valley in the south west of the province of Valencia and is called the "Valencian Tuscany": a multitude of small plots between the sea and the Meseta where vines have been tended since Roman times. Winemaker Jorge Caus Pertegaz with the assistance of consultant Norrel Robertson Master of Wine, has selected this stunning value Garnacha, Spain’s second most planted variety from mostly non-irrigated vineyards with low yields and blended it with 10% Tempranillo and 5% Monastrell for added flavour complexity.  

Bright and intensely vibrant red fruit aromas with generous, smooth red and black berry flavours, soft tannins and a nice touch of spice from the oak.  Winery
