Cuevas de Arom As Ladieras Garnacha, Campo de Borja 2018

Red Wine from Spain
3.500000000 star rating 2 Reviews
The 2016 was chosen by Jancis Robinson last year as her ‘Desert Island’ red, causing it to fly off our shelves. We are delighted to report that the 2018 is a more than worthy follow-on. Fragrant and classy, it offers a more delicate expression of garnacha which we adore, with sweet fruit and fine tannins.

Cuevas de Arom

Cuevas de Arom is a project put together by three friends who want to show just how good the distinctive, dry-farmed garnacha grapes of the Campo de Borja region of Aragon can be. Fernando Mora MW, Fernando Larasa and winemaker Mario López source their garnacha fruit from the members of the Santo Cristo cooperative where Mario is winemaker, bringing the harvest into a bijou winery built into a huge old concrete tank in the cooperative cellars, evoking the traditional cave cellars of the region, and leading to Cuevas de Aroms t-shirt logo ‘we produce high-altitude garnacha underground’. Here they use open-topped fermentation tanks and apply different maceration times to grapes from the various terroirs, and generally use whole bunches in the fermentation. Ageing takes place in a mixture of vessels, from concrete tanks and concrete eggs to barrels and foudres.

Another Garnacha from Campo de Borja, but marching to a different beat: fermented with 50% stems in concrete eggs and aged in both concrete eggs and foudres. Dark, glossy, somewhat mysterious and serious, the palate has a depth of sinewy fruit, just some ripeness of black berries coming through. Tannins are chalky and dry, acidity is good, and this finishes with quite lean gastronomic appeal and a long, spicy finish. 89/100
