Expressive aromas of strawberry and wild berries follow through to a clean, fresh and fruity palate with a velvety texture. A very quaffable style indeed!
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 Tinta Del Pais (a local synonym for Tempranillo) vines are old bush vines, varying between 43 and 55 years old, while the Tempranillo vines are trellised and have an average age of 23 years. 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. The alcoholic 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 six months in oak.
A fantastic wine to pair with lamb and tray roasted vegetables in sweet smoked paprika.
