This is one of Spain’s most exciting DO zones, which underwent a winemaking revolution in the 1990s, when it began producing the world’s greatest Garnachas (aka Grenache). The DO is covered with extremely low-yielding old vines, with an average production of just 5 or 6 hl/ha. Poor stone soils make up the terraced vineyards, and the Garnachas they bear are hugely concentrated, with fulsome alcohol and fruit richness, tempered with tingling minerality.
