Description

"Richly fruited and beautifully lifted, the engaging bouquet shows spiced cherry, cranberry, smoked meat, dark mushroom and toasted almond characters. The palate is wonderfully ripe and supple, delivering tasty fruit intensity and fleshy mouthfeel, brilliantly supported by silky texture and polished tannins. Sweetly fruited and attractively savoury. At its best: now to 2019" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Mar 2018

"The product of organically-grown 45 to 60-year-old bush vines grown on nutrient-poor, limestone-rich soils. A medium-bodied red with an extraordinary lengthy finish. An elegant and appealing wine with dark berry, spice and fresh herb flavours. An accessible wine" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Reviews, May 2018

Garnacha Tintorera (Alicante Bouschet) is a ‘teinturier’ grape variety with red flesh as well as dark skins. It is sought out by wine enthusiasts and connoisseurs for its amazing colour intensity and strong cherry, cassis, dark chocolate and black pepper characters backed up by a lush texture. This excellent example is juicy and plush with polished tannins. Enjoy this juicy red on its own or with roasted or grilled red meat and cheese dishes.

Bodegas Piqueras was founded in 1915 by Mario Bonete, one of the driving forces behind the creation of Almansa DO. in south-east Spain (100 kilometres inland from Valencia.) Today, Mario's sons look after the estate, with the goal of producing eminent wines at fantastic prices. The estate is situated at 700-800 metres altitude with an extreme continental climate, low rainfall and limestone-rich soils which are managed using organic farming methods… perfect conditions for  low yielding, slow ripening vines which produce rich, ripe, bold red wines of excellent concentration and  quality.

Powerful and weighty, but a bit rough around the edges.
