Altovinum Evodia

Grenache, Syrah

Calatayud

14.5 Alcohol

Introduction

Notes from the featured 2013 vintage. Evodia is an exciting new project in the Denominacion de Origen Calatayud, hailed as one of Spain's most progressive and promising wine growing regions. Calatayud is distinguished by its prevalence of high elevation vineyards planted to the Garnacha variety - in fact, the highest in the entire country. The vineyards surrounding the small town of Atea reach upwards of 3,000 feet - the highest within the DO. It is here, in the vineyards of Atea, that Altovinum sources their Garnacha grapes for Evodia. In addition to the remarkable climate due to elevation, the property is comprised of pure schiste soils, known as pisara in the local area. Aficionados familiar with the wines of the Priorat and the Roussillon are well acquainted to this soil type and its extraordinary influence on the wines. Ready to drink today or enjoy by 2018. Serve at room temperature, 18C.


How it looks

Dark core of royal plum hues, rich in colour to the edge.

How it smells

Elegant and feminine aromas, this is a fruit focused nose with tonnes of red plum, raspberry and cherry. There is an undertone of florals and loamy soil.

How it tastes

The old vine Grenache offers white pepper and crushed violets. There is an herbaceous quality to the wine, we noted sage and lavender. The combination is typical of a Rhone Grenache/Syrah blend offering Provence flavours. Moderate acidity, full bodied and slick tannins produce a well-balanced wine. The finish recalls the minerality from the nose, wet slate and ground stones.
