MANZANOS PEGASO GARNACHA 2018

On the border between Rioja and Navarra, Victor Manzanos carries on the work of the four generations before him.

Adding in significant amounts of ambition and energy, Victor Manzanos is at the forefront of the new Rioja - championing a modern interpretation of its varieties through his wines. As a grower, Victor is keen to prove that Rioja Baja has its own distinct character and should not be judged as inferior to Rioja Alta or Alavesa - just different. With brands also in Navarra, Victor and winemaker Borja are creating a wine that is prized and cherished, from old vines growing on poor chalk and limestone soils which give wild berry and cassis flavours to the reds.

The Garnacha used for this wine comes from the best vineyards around Northern Spain. The vines are predominantly grown on clay-limestone soil, and minimal intervention is practised. Grapes are all hand-picked in early October.

Upon reception, the grapes are de-stemmed without rollers to avoid crushing and extraction of harsh tannins from seeds and skins and to allow plenty of whole berries to be retained for varietal expression. The grapes are then fermented in 25-ton stainless steel fermenters using inoculated yeasts to give a fruit-driven profile without over-extraction. The ferment is kept relatively cool, aided by regular pump-overs and once dryness has been reached, the vat is drained and the skins gently pressed, with press fractions kept separate to avoid over-extraction and harsh tannins.

Strawberry red colour of medium intensity, clean and bright. This wine stands out for its aromas of black fruit, ripe red fruits and violets. Well structured, round and mellow.

The perfect accompaniment to char-grilled meat cured ham and tapas.
