TASTING NOTE

This an interesting and different wine. Dark crimson, with intense blueberries, black plums and cherries on the nose with hints of bayleaf, lavender and rose petal. Red and dark fruits on the palate with cocoa notes.

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

"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 and Bobal 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 García 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.
