Bodegas Morca - Godina Garnacha 2014
Bodegas Morca - Godina Garnacha 2014 (90 TSW)
Bodegas Morca is rooted in Campo de Borja which is a Spanish Denominción de Origen (D.O.) for wines located in the Campo de Borja region, northwest of the province of Zaragoza (Argon, Spain). The Moncayo mountain is the dominant feature of the D.O. and creates a micro-climate which gives the wines a special character.
The grapes for Godina Garnacha come from small plots with low yields. The plots are harvested by hand and fermented separately in small stainless steel tanks. The resulting wine is then put into French oak barrels to complete the malolactic fermentation, and remains there aging for 15 months. Lastly each barrel is tasted and, after a careful selection, a limited production of this wine is obtained.
My tasting notes:
In the glass a dark ruby red color with violet rim.
On the medium+ nose aromas of dark cherries, stewed fruit, vanilla and spices.
On the palate dry, medium+ bodied with a nice round mouthfeel, medium tannins and flavours of blackberries, vanilla, light barrique and spices.
Lovely smooth finish. This one is ready to drink. The high alcohol level I didn’t noticed.
