In a nutshell:
A bright, juicy Garnacha from high altitude vineyards in the remote region of Aragon in north east Spain.
Sommelier turned winemaker David Seijas, set up Gallina de Piel in order to showcase some qood quality, versatile wines from his patch of northern Spain. This red, Mimetic, is made from old vine Garnacha grown high up in Aragon where the climate is pretty arid with hot days and cool nights being the norm during the growing season. The wine was fermented and aged on its lees for six months in concrete tanks. The result is a ripe and spicy wine with notes of plum, blueberries and a herby hint of mint and thyme in the background. Impressively lively, it's a good Aragonese expression of Garnacha.
When to drink:
Ideal to drink just with nibbles, or it pairs well with roast spring lamb.
Suitable for Vegans
