Jose Antonio Garcia "Unculin"

Natural Wine!

In stock now at Forsyth!

Jose Antonio Garcia "Unculin" 2017, Bierzo....$17.99
The fruit-driven, juicy and expressive red 2017 Unculín is pure Mencía from very old vines produced in a light and refreshing style to make it easy to drink. It fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and had a total maceration time of some 30 days. It matured in a combination of stainless steel tanks and oak foudres for six months. It's clean and reminiscent of a northern Rhône Syrah, with floral, earthy and smoked meat aromas. The palate is round and lush, with fine tannins, very tasty flavors and good balance and freshness. Delicious!
Rated 90/100 The Wine Advocate
