Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The pure Garnacha 2020 Botijo Rojo Garnacha was produced with grapes from dry-farmed and head-pruned vines in the village of Épila at 450 meters in altitude. The grapes were picked at 13.5% alcohol and fermented and matured in concrete with some 10% full clusters to produce a wine that is juicy, varietal and easy to drink. All these wines have a low pH (3.27 in this case) and are fresh and balanced. It's young and primary, with fruit-forward aromas and flavors but with depth and very good balance and freshness. Elegant and quite surprising for an entry level. 60,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2021.
Between 14ºC and 16ºC
Fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel and concrete tanks. Aged for 10 months in concrete tanks.
