Extraño – meaning stranger in Spanish – 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!
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.
