Gloria S Garnacha 2016

Gloria S Garnacha 2016

The label shows Gloria Swanson, femme fatale and siren of the silent movies, a fitting moniker for this sultry, sexy wine. Semi-carbonic maceration for 4 days, 50% whole bunch; fermentation through airborne yeast in 500lt French oak (used) and 400lt clay amphorae for 18 days with no skin contact, spontaneous malolactic. The wine is aged in a combination of amphorae and smaller, used French oak casks for 18 months, followed by 20 months in bottle. Fresh red cherries abound on the nose with subtle candied fruit notes; nice firm tannins in the mouth and astounding length.

94 / 100, Descorchados 2020 (2016 vintage)
