Secastilla is a hidden valley which boasts hundred year old Garnacha vines and which was discovered by Viñas del Vero. The name of the valley, Secastilla, refers to the 7 castles (Septum Castella) which overlook the valley. Committed to the traditional Aragón variety, Garnacha, Viñas dle Vero is producing a wine from 100 year old vines while also investing in new plantings in this unique enclave.
The wine displays a violet edge that is characteristic of carefully made Garnacha. On the nose, it displays intense aromas that bring to mind sharp red fruits, complemented by wild flowers. The wine is smooth on the palate, pleasant and flavoursome.
The wine should be served at between 14 and 16 ºC with red meat, roasts, oily fish, cheese and desserts.
Supple and elegant with smooth cherry and berry fruits and subtly spicy edge. – Panel Chair: Clem Yates MW | Co-Chair: Jamie Goode
