Bodegas y Viñedos del Linaje Garsea is a family owned winery founded by Gabriel Garcia Martinez who used his knowledge and wine making skills to establish the company two generations ago. The winery was built in 2003, just three kilometres from Aranda. This is a real family operation, with seven members being involved in the winery. They work on very low yields, with minimal use of chemicals and harvest by hand, at night. A respect of nature is central to the family philosophy and the result is a collection of exceptional, handcrafted wines.
Winter pruning takes place, with further pruning in spring to distribute the nutrients evenly throughout the vine. The vine growth cycle then takes place as naturally as possible and the use of herbicides is avoided. The Tinta Del Pais vines (a synonym for Tempranillo) are old bush vines, varying between 43 and 55 years old, while the Tempranillo vines are trellised and have an average age of 23 years. The vines are grown in chalky clay soils and are naturally irrigated by rainfall. The grapes are hand harvested by family members into containers of 12 kilograms, in order to protect the grapes.
Maceration took place for three to four days, prior to the fermentation process. The wine was pumped over three times per day to break the cap and extract the richest colour possible.The alcoholic fermentation lasted between seven and nine days, at controlled temperatures of between 27 to 29°C. Natural malolactic fermentation took place and the wine was then clarified using albumin. The wine was not filtered. Aged in barrels, of which 45% was American oak, 45% French oak and 10% a combination of Hungarian and Spanish oak, for a period of 17 months.
Complex aromas of forest fruits lie on a symphony of oak, vanilla, cinnamon, toffee, spices and leather. Powerful on the palate, with fruit forward flavours of blackberry and plum backed by fruity tannins followed by an eternal finish. Maximum expression without excess.
Perfect with Spanish inspired cuisine especially lamb or pork dishes with red peppers, beans, infused with garlic and saffron; chorizo, meatballs and roasted Mediterranean vegetables.
