Trophy & Triple Gold Medal (two Grand Gold’s) - Every practice and environment prescribed for the perfect RED is in play here… yet the price is a meagre $24.90!

Paying $24.90 for this powerful and beguiling OLD VINE Spanish RED is like paying for a Toyota and driving away in a Maserati. A striking Trophy & Triple Gold Medal (two of them Grand Gold’s) red blend with equal amounts of Monastrell, Garnacha Tintorera, Syrah & Tempranillo macerated on skins for 22-days and aged in Allier French oak barriques for 14-months. Organically managed 65-90-year-old dry-farmed pre-Phylloxera vines in a high-altitude vineyard - the fruit is handpicked and sorted… every practice and environment you would prescribe to make the perfect RED is in play here, yet the price is a meagre $24.90/bottle… an extraordinary and unmissable cellar red buy!

The Wine...

Deep, dark and brooding aromas of baked fruits, baked earth with hints of iron, cedar and sweet baking spices. Rich, ripe fruit on the palate with plums, blackberry tart, chocolate, sandalwood, cinnamon and nutmeg all contributing to a stunning basket of flavours. Soft mouthcoating tannins, a warm texture and salivating acidity drive the extraordinarily long and satisfying finish. Beautifully ripe red imbued with energy and power. Great drinking now and until 2027, enjoy with cured meats, pasta and slow roasted meats.

We are excited to offer such a powerful and beguiling RED for just $24.90... a complex blend of 4 different grape varieties dry farmed (zero irrigation makes the vines work harder) in organically managed high-altitude vineyards. These are rare pre-Phylloxera vines on their original rootstock... not many such vineyards left in the world. It ticks every box from ground to glass that you would expect to find associated with expensive rare reds sporting $100-$200 price tags. 6-years old on release its an extraordinary and unmissable red wine buy at $24.90. Enjoy, Tracey

Description

Bodegas Piqueras was established in 1915 with Christmas lottery winnings and now four generations later, they are making stellar examples of Spanish wines. The vineyards are 750-950m, 65-90-year-old vines with pre-Phylloxera (aphid which eats the vine roots and kills the plant) strains of Monastrell, Garnacha and Tempranillo. Organic practices are used, dry farmed (no irrigation) in nutrient poor soils, high in limestone, producing amazing grapes.

Smells

deep, dark and brooding aromas of baked fruits, baked earth with hints of iron, cedar and dark baking spices.

Tastes

Rich, ripe fruit on the palate with blackberry tart, chocolate, sandalwood, cinnamon and nutmeg flavours, soft mouthcoating tannins giving a salivating texture with a long warm finish. A very ripe style but still has energy and drive. Great drinking now and until 2027, enjoy with cured meats, pasta and slow roasted meats.
