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."

Winemaking: The peluda variety is picked by hand separately from the garnataxa negra variety, although ripening times were similar. De-stemming, and crushing followed by fermentation in stainless steel at 23-26.°C. with daily remontage. Malolactic fermentation and aging for 10 months in new 500 litre barrels – French, Hungarian origin. 6,000 bottles produced.

Organically grown.
