Juanvi, La Viña de Báguena 2019

Regular price $45.00

Juanvi is a small-scale, artisan winery established in 2008 in the town of Rubielos de Mora in the Sierra de Gúdar-Javalambre mountains at 1000m, surrounded by beautiful peaks and scenic vistas in every direction. The region has a strong continental climate, with a wide daily variation of temperatures, from very cold at night to very hot during the day. 

La Viña de Báguena is made from a 3.5ha single-vineyard, Paraje de la Sierra, of organically-farmed garnacha. Vines were planted here in 1955 at 850m in red-quartz soils in the Sierra Santa Cruz, within the Sistema Ibérico mountain range. This site is a very low-yielding garnacha vineyard with traditional goblet-trained vines, featuring a convex relief formed by two opposing hills and a central plateau. 

La Viña de Báguena is a serious, elegant, balanced, and powerful garnacha that manages to retain freshness while showing varietal character and plenty of concentration, offering abundant aromatics and notes of fennel, wild berries, and herbs. In a similar vein as the best garnacha wines from the Sierra de Gredos region, La Viña de Báguena manages to be both powerful and elegant, with the mouthwatering drinkability that all of the wines from Juanvi give. It undoubtedly belongs among the top expressions of garnacha produced in Spain each year.  

The abstract label was created by one of winemaker Juanvi Alcañiz’s best friends, an artist from Valencia. It depicts the shape of the Paraje de La Sierra plot and the roots of the garnacha vines. 

This wine is released in very limited quantities once a year.

Vinification – Whole bunches are hand-harvested, then partially destemmed and crushed. Grapes undergo spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts with a 27-day maceration without temperature control and light punch-downs in two-year-old 400L French barrels. Following fermentation, the wine is racked and rests for ten months in the same barrels. Juanvi wines are bottled without stabilization, clarification, or filtration.
