Wine Advocate, 91 Points 

"Produced with the "hairy" strain of Garnacha called Garnacha Peluda, the 2016 La Peluda is an airy, fresh and elegant interpretation of the grape, from a strain that tends to deliver more delicate wines to start with. It still has 15% alcohol, so it's not a shy wine; it's a juicy and chewy Mediterranean red with good freshness and integrated oak. It matured in oak vats for 12 months. I liked the spiciness and the somewhat wild character of this red, which had some rusticity that gave it character. Tasty and sleek. 15,000 bottles were filled in September 2017." 

Jeb Dunnuck, 90 Points 

"A great value from a tiny region in Catalunya, the 2016 La Peluda (100% Garnatxa Peluda aged 12 months in demi-muids offers classic notes of melted licorice, roasted herbs, and road asphalt as well as a rocking core of sweet kirsch and black cherry fruit. Medium to full-bodied, ripe, and layered, it’s not a heavyweight and has a charming, elegant, incredibly drinkable style"

Winemaking:

De-stemming, and crushing followed by fermentation in stainless steel at 23-26°C. with daily remontage.
