Odipus - Old Vines Grenache2018
0 15643 26035 3
The estate was founded in 1999 by the joining of three wineries within the DO of Calatayud in north eastern Spain. Their goal is to produce the best wines from this region and to introduce their quality and value to the world. Quality is all important. Striking a balance between tradition and technology, their team of young professionals are open to innovation and advances, always in search of ways to improve and produce the best wines possible.
This elegant Garnacha offers up excellent density and richness in its black cherry fruit. Hints of smoke, incense, violets, and mineral notes add complexity to the smooth as silk finish. This wine is an incredible value for this level of quality.
The winery is located centrally to their vineyards. This proximity ensures that their most precious resources, the grapes, arrive at the bodega in prime condition, without having to endure long road journeys. They have invested heavily in modern winery equipment and installations. This investment has been concentrated on the items necessary for the production of high-quality wines; temperature control, stainless steel tanks, pneumatic presses, new American and French barrels and a state-of-the-art bottling line. This investment continues year after year as they aim to achieve ever higher standards. Odipus is composed of 100% Garnacha from 100+ year old vines and aged for 6 months in seasoned French oak prior to bottling.
