Garnacha/Syrah 'Caprichos' Bodegas Esteban Martin 2019
Caprichos Garnacha from Esteban Martin ia a wonderfully soft and velvety Old Vines Garnacha with a little Syrah, from Carinena in North East Spain. This represents one of our best value wines and although the label is a bit dodgy the wine inside more than makes up for it. The wine is un-oaked and packed with juicy wild berry fruit and hints of spice. It's warm and mellow and perfect for everyday drinking.
Bodegas Esteban Martin is a well-equipped, family owned, modern winey located at the foot of the Iberian Cordillera within the Carinena region of Spain, 350Km west of Barcelona. The climate is continental with cold winters and extremely hot summers. There is little rainfall and the temperature fluctuations are extreme. A cold, dry wind, called “Cierzo” also dominates the climate but these conditions provide growing conditions perfect for making wine with great personality and character. The winery is surrounded by over 200 hectares of their own vineyards which is mainly made up with Garnacha but here, the white Chardonnay and Macabeo also flourish.
