Putting the nose into the glass of the Acustic Vinyes Velles Nobles, a blend of Garnacha and Carinena from a diversity of vineyards in the Montsant, made me think of Carinena straight away.
The oak is very well integrated with the earthy, ironlike, blood and tree bark telltale aromas of the Carinena and some briar wild berries.
The palate is medium to full-bodied with great freshness; you'd never guess it's 15% alcohol.
It has very good balance and precise flavours with fine tannins. Fantastic value.
