Cerro la Isa Viñedo Singular Garnacha 2017
Cerro la Isa wines are made with the best grapes selected during the harvest of the old gobelet-trained vineyards that Juan Carlos Sancha’s great-grandfather planted 113 years ago for his son, upholding a long-standing tradition in Rioja.
This petite jewel of a plot occupies just 1.7 hectares tucked away on a slope that enjoys perfect southern exposure on an impressive grade at 700 metres above sea level overlooking the upstream valley of the Najerilla river (called Alto Valle del Najerilla by locals) in Baños de Río Tobía.
The vineyard’s extremely limited yield and exacting selection process have resulted in
a production of only 600 bottles for this inaugural vintage. This wine is one of the few that has been awarded the distinction of Viñedo Singular upon this historic first classification in Rioja.
Tasting Notes: Its noteworthy purple colour is very intense. Fruity with notes of liquorice and iodine. Its very full-bodied and structured palate is complex, with silky, elegant tannins that perfectly balance its acidity. Very persistent on the palate. On the nose, peach and cookie-like notes stand out from well-integrated oak. On the palate, this wine is very full-bodied and satiny. Its tart, fresh quality is very well-structured and remarkably persistent.
