Tempore Organic Generacion 73 Garnacha 2016
The history of Bodegas Tempore is deeply rooted in vine growing in and around the town of Lécera some 40 kms south of the city of Zaragoza in NE Spain. The Yago Aznar family have an intimate knowledge of and passion for their vineyards, having been viticulturalists here for four generations. The winery itself was founded as recently as 2002 enabling the family to vinify their own wines from their own fruit for the very first time.
Absolute respect for the environment is a central pillar to the working philosophy of the Yago Aznar family. To them, organic cultivation means minimum intervention, natural winemaking and respect for the rhythms of the land.
Aged for two months in 500 litre French oak barrels the Generacion wines come from the best hand-picked parcels of vines. Bodegas Tempore is famous for its Grenache (Garnacha) and the 73 is their best expression of this variety coming from 70 year vines. Soft tannins due to its thin skin but with intense fruit concentration and lifted but balanced alcohol. Raspberry and strawberry aromas with a subtle white pepper spice note.
