ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About Alto Moncayo Veraton Garnacha

Alto Moncayo Veraton Garnacha is a big boy Spanish red with a nose of cassis, anise, and smoked meats. Flavors of black raspberry, red plum, and crushed violet blossoms are all wrapped in a silky tannic sheath that wends its way toward a long-lasting finish. The selected perfectly matured bunches are placed into small stainless-steel tanks for temperature-controlled fermentation. The wine is aged for 16 months in French and American oak.

About Alto Moncayo Veraton Garnacha

Bodegas Alto Moncayo is a winery located in the Campo de Borja D.O. It was founded in 2002 with the aim of turning it into a world reference for Garnacha wines of the highest quality, crafted from some of the oldest native vine clones in the area. The Garnacha grape is one of the varieties that best expresses its terroir. Thus, the Garnacha of Alto Moncayo is different from the rest of the Campo de Borja DO area. This is due to the very strict selection made from the vineyards, the type of soil in which it is grown, the microclimate, and the age of the vines.

Located in Borja- the heart of the Campo de Borja DO. Vines are planted at the foothills of El Moncayo which is the highest point in the Iberian Mountain Range (2,315 m) and the winery’s namesake. The region experiences a continental climate with hot summers and cold winters. Vineyards are planted on unique soils of red clay (indicative of being rich in iron) mixed with red slate, and because of the hillside location are shallow and nutrient-deficient.

The Garnacha grapes of Alto Moncayo undergo very strict vineyard selection, from vines planted as far back as the early 1900s through the 1970s. Only the most perfectly mature clusters are selected and carried in small crates to prevent crushing, where they are further sorted and selected at triage tables. Wines undergo malolactic fermentation in both French & American oak and are aged in new barrels for anywhere from 16-24 months. These practices, in combination with the unique microclimate of the area, ensure superior quality Garnacha that is distinct from any other in the Campo de Borja D.O.
