Grapes: 100% Garnacha Tinta (Red Grenache)
This wine is produced from old vines, aged 50 years and older which are trained en vaso. The vineyards are located between 750 and 1000 meters above sea level and have iron-rich clay soils with many large stones.
Fruit for this wine was hand harvested in early October. The grapes were destemmed and fermented in cement tanks. Malolactic fermentation was also completed in cement. Following fermentation the wine was aged for 4 months in a combination of 50% used French oak barrels and 50% used American oak barrels.

The 2014 Acentor Garnacha from Isaac Hernandez Selección is made from fifty year-old vines that are fermented in cement tanks and raised in older barrels, of both French and American oak origin. The wine is fourteen percent alcohol and offers up a ripe, classic nose of black raspberries, cherries, pepper, roasted game, a bit of coffee grounds and a topnote of sandalwood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and plush on the attack, with a good core, ripe tannins and fine length and grip on the moderately complex and well-balanced finish. A very good bottle of Garnacha. 2016-2024. Issue Sixty-One January-February 2016
(aged for four months in used French and American oak barrels): Bright ruby. Ripe blackberry, candied flowers and woodsmoke on the fragrant nose. Sweet, seamless and broad on the palate, showing good depth to its red and dark berry flavors. Closes silky, floral and broad, with harmonious tannins coming in late to add shape. 2017 – 2021 Central Spain: Tempranillo and Beyond
