THIS ONE WILL FLY!


This is a timeless house from Cigales, one of Spain’s up and coming red wine regions. This 100% Garnacha is a classic Spanish wine with a modern flare.

The warmer weather changes our patterns; as we spend more time outside with friends and family. Wool sweaters and boots are stowed away, replaced by golf shirts and flip flops. Our eating and wine-drinking habits change too. Our palates crave easy drinking wines, crisp whites and round and approachable red wines with lush, soft fruit. The wines we drink in the spring pair magnificently with the lighter fare – shell fish, salads, grilled chicken and cold soup.

With these changes upon us, after a long and nasty winter for many, we jumped on the 2013 La Legua Garnacha from Cigales, Spain. This wine over-delivers and at $12.99 in a case, this is a wine you will toast all season long!

About the Estate

La Legua combines 300 years of winemaking tradition with modern techniques. This is one of the reasons, the house and the region is on the up in the eyes wine drinkers, especially those seeking high QPR returns. The winemakers are committed to offering quality wines which form part of the Cigales Denomination of Origin (D.O.), with a character and personality of their own. To achieve this, their wines are produced exclusively with painstakingly cultivated and carefully selected grapes from the Estate of La Legua.

La Legua’s vineyards and winery are located on the Finca de La Legua, a family-owned estate that lies at a distance of 6 kilometers, or one league, from Valladolid and from the towns of Fuensaldaña, Mucientes, Cigales and Cabezón. Pioneering estates like La Legua are now taking advantage of low-yielding, old vines and modern wine-making methods to produce excellent value reds from Tempranillo and Garnacha.

90 Point Parker/Wine Advocate Review & Tasting Notes: The 2013 Garnacha is an un-oaked, young and fresh version of Garnacha from Cigales that possesses an exuberant nose of herbs and spices and sweet hints of red berries, licorice and floral undertones. The palate is light, with very good acidity, fine tannins and herbal sensations. Ideal with food. 8,000 bottles produced. Drink now-2017.

Vineyard’s Tasting Notes: A medium cherry colored wine. Intense and clean on the nose with violet candy tones and a spicy and floral background. It bursts onto the palate with an abundance of expressive blackberry and red licorice, displaying lovely soft tannins and juicy acidity which leads to a refreshing finish.
