Professional Wine Reviews for Alto Moncayo Campo De Borja Alto Grenache 2013

Rated 93 by Decanter
Bright violet color. A complex, expansive bouquet evokes ripe dark berries, candied flowers, vanilla and incense, with a smoky mineral overtone. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering concentrated boysenberry and cherry-cola flavors that show surprising vivacity and a touch of back end spiciness. Finishes very long and energetic, with supple tannins building slowly and in harmony with the wine's intense fruit. This suave bottling, which is sourced from vines that were planted between 1910 and 1967, was aged in new French and American oak barrels for 22 months. (Galloni)

Winery Alto Moncayo

Varietal: Grenache

Grenache grapes have long been cultivated in various parts of Europe, and are noted for being particularly successful in arid regions which are both hot and very dry. As such, they are ideal for many New World countries, and have quickly established themselves as one of the most widely grown red wine grape varietals in the world. The Grenache grape is easily identifiable by its purple skin, and tightly hanging bunches which grow quite rigorously in the correct conditions. They are most commonly associated with light bodied wines, with little tannins or acidity, yet quite a high alcohol content. As such, they are very versatile, and are regularly used for both single variety and blended wines, in which their strong and unique features can shine through.

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
