Professional Wine Reviews for Altovinum Evodia Grenache 2014

Rated 90 by Stephen Tanzer
(aged for five months in stainless steel and concrete tanks): Brilliant ruby. Smoky, spice-accented blueberry and boysenberry aromas are complicated by suggestions of candied violet and white pepper. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering intense black and blue fruit flavors enlivened by juicy acidity. The floral note repeats emphatically on the long, gently tannic finish, which leaves allspice and blue fruit notes behind. These vines, many of which are reportedly more than a century old, are planted between 850 and 950 meters above sea level. The wine is a remarkable value as it offers the fruit intensity and floral complexity of many wines that cost easily two or three times the price. (Galloni)

Varietal: Grenache

The purple skinned Grenache grapes have become, over the past few decades, one of the most widely planted grape varietals on earth, thanks to their unique characteristics and the fact that they are an ideal varietal for use in both single variety and blended wines. They tend to be very light in body, due to the fact that they have low tannin levels and not much acidity to them. However, they can add a boost of alcohol to any blended wine, and also offer their complex and spicy flavors of pepper and dark berries. Grenache grapes grow very well in dry and arid region, such as their native home of central Spain, and struggle with damp conditions in which they are prone to rot or develop mildew. Thankfully, modern techniques and technology has managed to overcome many of these problems, resulting in this varietal continuing to grow in use and popularity.

Country: Spain

Spanish wines are renowned world-wide for carrying all the passion and character of the Spanish culture within them. Any lover of Spanish wine would undoubtedly be able to confirm this notion, as the variety and range of flavors and aromas coming from the high end of Spanish produce is truly impressive, and continues to delight and fascinate both newcomers and the more experienced. Spain benefits massively from an ideal climate for wine production and vine cultivation, with its long, scorching hot summers and far reaching oceanic breezes working perfectly with the native and imported grape varietals, which thrive on the mineral rich soils that cover much of the country. With centuries of knowledge, and generations of expertise under their belts, Spanish wineries continue to focus on raising the quality of their nation's wines, helped along the way by relatively new laws and regulations regarding regional excellence and representativeness.
