Description:
A dark, intense wine.

The nose offers a compote of blueberries, blackberries and dark cacao chocolate. Hints of cinnamon, spice and exotic smells of fresh black pepper.

On the palate there is strong but soft, intense blackberry fruit - a velvet glove over an iron fist.

Dark leather and dry cocoa tannins and an almost chocolate truffled palate, supported by creamy blueberry cheesecake and fresh, uplifting pure blackberry.

Producer Information

`Four aspiring wine Knights and some bloody old vineyards,` is how Zar Brooks describes Cien y Pico. This exciting new producer is based in Manchuela, a small region in south-eastern Spain. The name Cien y Pico means "Hundred and something" and refers to the age of the ancient Garnacha Tintorera vines from which these wines are made. The project is the result of many years of experience in the region and the personal quest of four winemakers (Australian Zar Brooks, his Bulgarian wife Elena Golakova Brooks, Spaniard Luis Juminez Garcia and Italian Nicola Tucci) to preserve these 19th century vineyards. For some growers, harvesting the low yields of these vineyards is uneconomical and the attraction of EU subsidies, in exchange for uprooting the old vines, has proved too tempting. When the team first tasted the wines and visited the region, they agreed that something needed to be done and Cien y Pico was born.
