"Cien Lanzas" is comprised of old vine Garnacha (95%) with a small addition of Cariñena and Garnacha Blanca, from several small, high-elevation parcels planted on sandy granite soils in the village of Cenicientos. Practicing organic farming. Old vines ranging from 60-100 years in age. Foot-trodding maceration, minimal sulfur. Only 433 cases produced.
The grapes were hand-harvested between Sept. 10th & Oct. 11th, whole-cluster cold macerated, wild yeast fermented with 100% whole clusters and 21-43 days maceration depending on parcel. The wine then was raised in 500L French & Austrian oak barrels and 5000l French oak foudre for 13-14 months, bottled in May 2018 with a light fining and without filtration.
This is a lithe and complex single village mountain red, perfect for grilled, barbecued and roasted meats & poultry.
