Wine AdvocateThe single-vineyard Garnacha 2016 Malayeto comes from 2.39 hectares of vines averaging 35 years of age in the village of Fitero at 520 meters in altitude on limestone soils. It's a bright ruby colored red, wine with tons of spices, herbs, flowers, notes of bay leaf, thyme and a bright personality. It has a light to medium-bodied palate with unnoticeable oak (it matured in well-seasoned, neutral oak foudres and barrels), with complex stone minerality, a dry and long finish. This is really delicious and a very good value, possibly the freshest of the six Garnachas I tasted from them. Some 12,000 bottles were filled in March 2018. This is a real bargain, one to buy by the case.
