Bodegas y Viñedos del Linaje Garsea is a family owned winery founded by Gabriel Garcia Martinez who used his knowledge and wine making skills to establish the company two generations ago. The winery was built in 2003, just three kilometres from Aranda. This is a real family operation, with seven members being involved in the winery. They work on very low yields, with minimal use of chemicals and harvest by hand, at night. A respect of nature is central to the family philosophy and the result is a collection of exceptional, handcrafted wines.
Winter pruning takes place, with further pruning in spring to distribute the nutrients evenly throughout the vine. The vine growth cycle then takes place as naturally as possible and the use of herbicides is avoided. The vineyards are trellis trained with 3,000 vines per hectare. The soils are predominantly clay and limestone, which are rich in iron and potassium.
Maceration lasted for approximately four to five days before the fermentation process began. The wines were pumped over three times per day, in order to break the cap and extract the richest colour possible. Fermentation lasted for 17 days, at controlled temperatures of between 27 to 29°C. Only the first must was used, which then went through natural malolactic fermentation. The wine was clarified using albumin and was not filtered. Matured for three months in new oak.
An intense wine, with vibrant aromas of black fruits complemented by hints of cinnamon and vanilla. Medium bodied on the palate, bursting with blackberry, currant and plum flavours.
A versatile red that accompanies robust flavours such as hearty stews, roasted meats, smoked sausages or cured hams.
