Savoury, minerally flavours from old vine Garnacha and Cariñena are complemented by the smokiness and backbone of the Syrah and Cabernet. A month’s contact with French Oak staves adds a touch of vanilla and complexity.
– 2015 – The sweetness of the 2015 vintage is evident in this Macán Clásico with its ripe bramble nose but there is an intriguingly scented note to the bouquet which makes it extremely attractive. Full of crunchy, fresh red fruit, this is a refreshing, elegant and moreish Rioja. The tannins are all in evidence; they are pert yet incredibly fine suggesting that, whilst this can be enjoyed now, it has the structure of a much more serious wine.
– Full bodies and voluminous on the palate, it is smooth, pleasant and elegant. Floral aspects with a velvety feel, spicy and effervescent hints and subtle smoky nuance. Freshness and warmth evenly coexist with a balsamic background, characteristic of juniper. Lingering finish on the palate is long and delightful. A unique, low-temperature distillation process combining traditional systems with the latest gastronomic techniques. This preserves the essence and freshness of their selection of Mediterranean (lemon, citron,laurel) and exotic botanicals (kaffir lime leaves, black cardomom, coriander seeds) which combined in just the right proportions with juniper, result in unparalleled flavour and aroma. Ginraw is made in small batches to ensure the excellence of quality and taste in each bottle, that defines their reason for being.
