La Multa Old Vine Garnacha - Calatayud
REGION: Calatayud, Spain
Given how much bulk wine this part of Spain produces, much of it pretty poor quality, it's a small miracle that this wine came out of there. The "Old Vine" bit is pretty important, as older vines tend to produce less fruit, meaning each one has more flavour concentration. And this wine packs a fairly hefty flavour punch. Very easy-drinking and quaffable, but with enough oomph to stand up to a decent casserole or steak too.
