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.
A cold winter with high rainfall, followed by further rains in April and May created
good soil water reserves. Weather patterns were mixed over the summer, with some
rain, sunny days and overcast days, but véraison occurred on time and the growth
cycle of the vines continued at a steady pace. September saw warm, sunny
weather which encouraged the ripening of the berries. The harvest took place in
October and the grapes were exceptionally healthy and of very good quality.
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 (a local synonym for
Tempranillo) vines 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 soils are
predominantly clay and limestone, which are rich in iron and potassium.
The grapes were harvested from 2nd to 11th October; the berries were hand-picked
and manually selected by the harvesting team who are all members of the family.
Pre fermentation maceration lasted for approximately five to seven days. The must
was pumped over three times per day to break the cap and extract the richest
colour possible. Fermentation lasted between seven and nine days and temperature
was controlled at between 27°C to 29°C. Only the first must was used, which then
underwent natural malolactic fermentation. The wine was clarified using albumin
and was not filtered. The wine was aged for 13 months in French and American oak
Deeply coloured, this Crianza displays intense aromas of blackberries and plums,
laced with hints of cinnamon and vanilla. Fruit forward and textured on the palate,
with tones of blackberry, blackcurrant and plum enveloped by nuances of sweet
spic. Elegantly styled with a persistent finish.
The perfect accompaniment to tapas.
