2018 COMENGE EL ORIGEN CRIANZA

Grape Varieties : Tempranillo

Medium-high depth, black cherry in the glass with garnet highlights, bright and very clean.

Explosive nose, very fruity. Noted for its intense acidic and balsamic red fruit: redcurrant, wild strawberry, hints of liquorice and aniseed.

The mouth is fresh with a medium-high structure and pleasant texture. The natural acidity adds a refreshing sensation that makes the wine easy to drink. The fruit is joined by notes of the ageing: vanilla, sweet spices (cinnamon, clove) and the balsamic sensation of liquorice, bringing positive complexity to the wine overall. The aftertaste is lasting and leaves a pleasant sensation on the palate.

About the winery

The landscape can also be drunk.

When, back in 1999, Jaime Comenge started working on his desire to make wine, his ideas were clear: the vineyard is the fundamental pillar of the character and personality of a wine and it therefore needs to be considered in each stage of the winemaking process. With this idea in mind, Bodegas Comenge has created its own winemaking philosophy based on innovation and research to express the true charm of our vineyard in the purest and most genuine way possible. The important element is production.

Our vines are certified as grown using 100% organic methods. This has a direct effect on the flavour of the grapes and our wines. Production levels are small: we maintain the plant cover, turning the vineyard into a natural garden, into a diverse ecosystem that adds balance to the vine and is good for our health.

The wines are born in the vineyard. Our oenologist’s work is important, but the most important thing is not to hide the terroir, expressed in each vintage in an elegant and balanced way.
