“The unoaked red 2018 Botijo Rojo Garnacha was produced with grapes from 25 hectares of vineyards ranging between 20 and 50 years of age (they used to do a separate old-vine cuvée, but it was discontinued and those grapes are now here). It fermented in stainless steel and concrete with around 10% full clusters and matured in underground concrete vats for 10 months. It’s fruit-driven but with good complexity, with moderate alcohol, a mixture of red and white fruit with a touch of licorice, varietal, with a medium-bodied palate, fine tannins and a fruit-driven finish, with good tension (is it the stems?). A very good vintage (the best so far?) for this bottling.” - Luis Gutierrez
