Extraño – meaning stranger in Spanish – is not so much a stranger anymore! As one of our most awarded wines for 2017, receiving a 4.5 star Platter rating, a 2017 National Wine Challenge Top 100 award, and a 90 point score at the Winemag Signature Red Blend Report Awards 2017, it has been flying from our Tasting Room pods and online store. Introducing an unusual blend of Spanish varieties Tempranillo, Grenache and Carignan, this red will pack a punch and wow any hearty meal. Arriba arriba, bring out those castanets!

Description

The grapes were handpicked and destemmed, after which the berries were sorted into open-top wooden tanks (foudres). Punch-downs took place daily and the grapes were basket-pressed after fermentation. The wine was matured in French and American oak barrels (of which 20% was in new barrels) for 24 months. Each component of the blend is kept separate until final blending prior to bottling.
