"Produced with a specific strain of Garnacha, Garnacha Peluda or hairy Garnacha, the 2015 La Peluda is a new bottling from lime and limestone soils planted with the strain that tends to produce fresher and lighter juice with higher acidity. It fermented in stainless steel with malolactic in barrels and a further ten months in 500-liter French oak barrels. There is a sappy spicy character to this red that I loved, cracked peppercorn with a wild side that made me think of a Syrah from Valais. It's really aromatic and showy. The palate is very refined, with an herbal twist that provides great freshness, perhaps from a relatively early harvest. Impressive!! 6,000 bottles were filled in September 2016." -Luis Gutiérrez, Oct 2016
