Acentor Garnacha 2019


Available Now!

“The 2019 vintage of Garnacha from Acentor is excellent on both the nose and palate, as these old, bush vines have really excelled. The bouquet is deep and complex, wafting from the glass in a blend of crushed raspberries, dark berries, smoked meats, hickory smoke, a fine base of stony soil tones, pepper and a spicy topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, ripe and complex, with a superb core of fruit, impressive soil signature and grip, ripe, well-integrated tannins and a long, very well-balanced finish. This is excellent.” 92 points View from the Cellar; John Gilman - Issue #92 March/April 2021
