San Valero ‘Origium 1944’ Garnacha Cariñena 2016

Winery: Located in the Cariñena region of northern Spain, the San Valero Cooperative was founded in 1944 [making it the oldest winery in Cariñena] by 60 growers who at the time were producing bulk wines. Today the cooperative consists of more than 700 members that cultivate 3500 hectares of vineyards located between the rivers Huerva and Jalón. They focus on producing high quality wines using modern technology.

Tasting Notes: Bright ruby red in colour with aromas of strawberry, raspberry, cherry and chalk minerals. Super fruity with fresh raspberry, strawberry and cherry glossed by citrus acidity. A streak of chalk minerality runs thru to the dry fruity finish. Refreshing and gluggable, great on its own, easy to pair with a wide variety of dishes, from snacks and appetizers to simple dishes like every day pastas and pizza.

[Paired with raw cow’s milk Emmentaler, traditional mustard, and multi-grain pretzels.]
