Description

"Beautifully fruited and inviting, the bouquet shows dark plum, spiced cherry, vanillin oak and cake spice aromas, followed by a succulent palate that is flavoursome and lingering. The wine delivers gorgeous fruit richness backed by flowing texture and fine-grained tannins, making it fabulously drinkable" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Sep 2019

This powerful, complex wine has aromas of wild, dark berries, chocolate, herbs and spices with hints of vanilla-pod and toast. A delicious blend of 25% Monastrell, 25% Garnacha Tintorera, 25% Tempranillo, 25% Syrah.

Gran Marius is selected from the very best plots of the single estate Finca los Timonares, 110 hectares of vines in Almansa, south-east Spain, (100 kilometres inland from Valencia) and the Mediterranean Sea. Family owned, this is the fourth generation of the Piqueras family to have grown grapes in the region since 1915 and family was instrumental in the area being recognised as a D.O. The region is characterized by scarce rainfall and poor and low-fertility limestone soils which are all organically & sustainably farmed (Certified Ecológico) at high altitude, 750-950 metres above sea.

The wines is a special blend of the powerful indigenous variety Monastrell (Mourvedre) sourced from ancient 65-90-year-old, dry-farmed, pre-Phylloxera vines with local regional specialty Garnacha Tintorera (Alicante Bouschet), a ‘teinturier’ grape variety with dark purple flesh as well as dark skins is sought out by wine enthusiasts and connoisseurs for its amazing colour intensity. These are supplemented by trellised and bush vines from the best vineyard plots of Tempranillo and trellised Syrah which is ideally suited to the region.

Each variety is macerated and fermented separately. The young wine of each variety is racked several times to remove the heaviest lees and then stored in stainless steel tanks for 10-12 months to soften tannins prior to blending the various varieties and ageing the wine for 14 months in 500 litre fine grain medium-toasted French oak casks to add complexity and finesse. The wine is then bottled after undergoing gentle filtration and aged for a minimum of 12 months in bottle prior to release.

Food Pairing: Rich layered and multi-dimensional this wine is structured to age well or partner with a wide variety of meat and cheese dishes.
