Description

Bright ruby in colour, this wine is floral and expressive on the nose. Primary aromas of red fruits blend with complex nuances of minerality and spice. The palate has a good weight sensation, mainly given by the intense and deep fruit flavours, whereas the finish is fresh, juicy and clear, yet persistent.

Hand-harvested Garnacha grapes were destemmed and crushed, before fermentation with indigenous yeasts in large, used, open-top 5000L foudres. The wine was then aged six months in 500L oak barrels of various origins and ages, followed by a further six months in stainless steel tanks. `Zeta` Garnacha was gently fined and bottled unfiltered in August 2022.

The fruit for Zeta is sourced from a blend of organic farmed estate grapes and locally purchased fruit from growers. The over 60-year-old, bush-trained Garnacha vines from the El Robledillo, El Mojón and Presidente estates in Cerberos village, grown at altitudes of 750-900 metres above sea level. The slate and granite soils are layered over a magmatic rock base, which is the main soil type of the appellation. This shallow, corase-textured and well-draining soil lends depth and fruit character to the resulting wines.
