ALTOVINUM EVODIA GARNACHA 2021

14 Current Inventory

100% Garnacha, that's a killer value! Layers of fruit (blackberry and kirsch) with fabulous tannins, no hard edges, and a great finish. 

91 POINTS, The Wine Advocate. The 2021 Evodia comes from a cold year with snow, frost but an average rest of the season. They estimate a 25% decrease in yields, but the grapes picked before the rain delivered fresh wines with good aging potential. This finished at 14.6% alcohol and with good freshness and acidity. It fermented with some 15% full clusters in concrete, and 60% of the volume remained in concrete while the rest was equal parts in used 225-liter barrels and large oak vats for five months. It was a very challenging year, but the result feels great, a cooler and fresher vintage than 2020 and 2022. It's a fragrant Garnacha, a fruit-driven and juicy effort with super fine tannins and a balanced mouthfeel. Volume has gone down and price has gone up a bit, but the quality has also grown and it's still a real bargain."
