Trying this wine from Escondite del Ardacho for the first time it was a bit of revelation. These are relatively new to the scene here in Melbourne are just fantastic. They are rich and juicy with plush red and black fruits and lifted sweet spices. There is a lovely wild thyme accent to both the palate and the nose. The Garnacha dominant palate and the touch of Malvasia gift a lovely soft and pliant texture that is so appealing. Fermentation with natural yeasts in open vats, 80% of grapes are destemmed, gentle batonnage and aging in second-use oak barrels for nine months without racking. The vineyards are worked with minimal intervention and sustainable viticulture with vines ranging from  between 91 and 106 years old. PWS
