Wine Info

Origin- Spain

Region- Calatayud

Grapes- Garnacha, Other Native Red Varieties

Type- Red

Style- Bright, fresh, juicy, fruity red



Fragrant and approachable with notes of black plum, blueberry and thyme with a menthol background. The palate is vibrant and juicy, with lively acidity underpinning the opulent fruit profile and ripe tannins.

‘Mimetic’ comes from 40 to 80-year-old Garnacha vines grown on deep, red clay soils with large surface pebbles in Aragon’s Calatayud appellation. This arid, desert landscape sits at 750 – 1,000 metres above sea level. The hot continental climate here is tempered by cool nights which help to retain a refreshing acidity in the grapes. The wine is aged in concrete for six months. It is a bright, juicy Garnacha with lively freshness.

Gallina de Piel is an exciting winemaking project from David Seijas, the former Head Sommelier at three-Michelin-starred restaurant El Bulli. David’s aim is to create versatile wines from Spain’s gastronomic northern regions: Catalonia, Aragon and Galicia. He works with local growers, selecting the best vineyards and indigenous grape varieties to create wines with an emphasis on elegance and freshness.
