- Vinicola Corellana Camara Alta Navarra Garnacha 2015 Product #31418 (In Stock)
As more than one expert has said, seeing the Thomas Calder Selection note on a wine's back label is a close to a guarantee of quality as you're going to get. Here, Tom heads south from his normal French turf to uncover a gem of a winery from Spain's Navarra region. North of Rioja and note far from the French border, Navarra was Spain's most important wine region in the 1700-1800s, so much so that the King had to ban new vineyard plantings for fear not enough food would be grown to feed the local population!
The sandy soils of Ribera Baja, in Navarra's south, are perfect for getting traditional grapes like Garnacha fully ripe without going over the top, and that's what we have here. Done all in tank, Garnacha grapes from 50+ year-old vines delivers direct strawberry and cherry fruit with dashes of herb and spice for extra interest. Easy drinking, fresh, and fun, this over-delivers for the price and will be a great everyday red for casual food and entertaining.
