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 was followed by warm temperatures in spring, which helped to accelerate budding. June saw good rainfall for vine development and built soil water reserves. Summer temperatures were excessively hot, with véraison taking place at the beginning of August. August and September saw excellent diurnal temperature differences, which provided perfect conditions for ripening of the grapes. Harvest took place at the end of September, with healthy grapes showing sweet concentrated fruits. 2015 was an exceptional vintage.
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 hand-picked and manually selected by the harvesting team who are all members of the family. Pre fermentation maceration lasted six days, extracting colour. The must was pumped over three times per day to break the cap and to further extract the richest colour possible. Fermentation lasted seven days at controlled temperatures of 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 a combination of 45% French, 45% American and 10% Spanish and Hungarian oak barrels.
Deeply coloured, this Crianza displays intense and complex aromas of blackberries and plums, laced with hints of caramel, cinnamon and vanilla. Fruit forward and textured on the palate, with tones of blackberry, blackcurrant and plum enveloped by nuances of sweet spice. Elegantly styled with a long finish.
The perfect accompaniment to tapas.
