Impenetrable purple. Pronounced aromas of crushed violets. Intense yet refined with lifted, perfumed fruit and wild mountain herbs. Full bodied, with rounded tannins, crisp acidity and a long mineral finish.
Norrel Robertson is a master of wine, consulting and making wine around the world. He also owns a little patch of land, high up in the rugged landscape of Calatayud, where he tends to gnarly, old Garnacha vines in poor mineral soils: poetic symbolism for this rebellious Scotsman who won’t be tamed. To look at his labels is to realise his irreverence for the local law. With his wild winemaking techniques, Norrel is making his mark on this region with raw, fantastically assertive Garnacha wines.
