El Escoses Volante La Multa Garnacha 2016
Vegetarian & Vegan Friendly
There aren't many Scotsmen making wine in Spain but Norrel Robertson MW is a bit of a maverick!
El Escocés Volante, the Flying Scotsman, is the winemaking company set up by Norrel and refers to his itinerant lifestyle making wine across Spain.
Having worked in every aspect of the wine world, in both the Northern and Southern Hemisphere, Norrel now works hand in hand with local growers in Calatayud to source old vine blocks of exceptional quality to make wines with real character.
His Scottish determination, coupled with the rigour of the climate, low rainfall and high diurnal temperatures during the ripening period result in lower yields and higher quality harvests.
This bush vine Garnacha shows pronounced intensity of primary raspberry, cherry and prune varietal fruit characters with complex earthy notes of spice and leather. Full bodied with fine, soft tannins and well balanced acidity. Soft raspberry and wild berry fruits give way to a long, smooth, spicy finish.
