Tasting notes: A perfumed nose of honeysuckle, jasmine, white peaches, melons and lychees. It’s full-bodied, round and fruity with a creamy, soft texture. Garnacha blanca and chardonnay. Vegan. Delicious now.
Producer: Located in the heart of the Cariñena Denomination of Origin, one of the historical and emerging areas of national viticulture, Bodegas Care was born as an exclusive, advanced and committed wine business. A fourth generation, family-owned vineyard and winery, Bodegas Care uses only estate fruit that is dry-farmed in the traditional, organic way, but then employs modern winemaking tools to elevate the wines even further.
Vineyard and Winemaking: The alluvial plain along the Ebro River is extremely rocky, like that other bastion of Garnacha, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and with its 1800-2400 feet of elevation, the daily temperatures range is extreme and helps extend the growing season, thus adding complexity. Care is the Roman name for the town of Cariñena, but wine has been made in this part of Aragon by the Celts even before the Romans. As Garnacha Blanca (Grenache Blanc) is a mutation of Garnacha (Grenache) and Grenache is now known to have come from the island of Sardegna, the 60% percent of this blend that is Garnacha Blanca cannot claim to be an indigenous grape (and the 40% that is Chardonnay certainly cannot) but as the Kingdom of Aragon ruled Sardegna from 1297 to 1715, the Garnacha Blanca has long made a home in this part of the world. Sobre Lias simply means “on the lees”, which gives this wine a full mouthfeel and a touch of creamy flavors.
