WE KNOW THE FAMOUS POEM BY FEDERICO GARCÍA LORCA, BUT WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT THE WINE NAMED IN MEMORY OF THE POET? POETA EN NUEVA YORK IS THE LABEL UNDER WHICH BODEGA RAMBLA HUAREA SELLS THIS TEMPRANILLO
Granada, 2nd October 2019 – Coined as the smallest winery in Spain with the production of less than 8,000 bottles per harvest, Bodega Rambla Huarea Works with a system of fourteen micro-parcels on terraces, some of which have as few as only fourteen plants. Bodega Rambla Huarea produces five wines made from six different grape varieties, four of which are red wine and one of which is white.
Due to the vineyards’ location being only 400 metres above sea level, and therefore so close to the sea, Bodega Rambla Huarea is one of the first to harvest in the province of Granada. The harvest is carried out by hand with the utmost care and only the best grapes are selected.
Poeta en Nueva York, Tempranillo 2017 is a red wine made with love and care. In appearance, the wine is clear, medium (+) in intensity and violet-red in colour. On the nose, the wine is clean and is of medium (+) intensity. There are primary aroma characteristics of red fruits such as strawberry, raspberry, plum, fig and cherry, and spice aromas such as vanilla. The nose is fruity and fresh.
On the palate, this Poeta en Nueva York is dry with medium (-) acidity which reflects the low altitude of the vineyards and the sunny climate. It is of medium alcohol, full in body and of medium flavour intensity. There are primary flavours of red fruit such as strawberry, raspberry, plum, fig and cherry, and spice flavours such as vanilla. The finish is refreshingly long.
In conclusion, the quality level is good, and it is suitable to drink now. The Poeta en Nueva York, Tempranillo 2017 would pair well with light meals and perhaps even lightly chilled to drink on a warm and balmy summer evening.
