Vinas del Vero Secastilla Range
The Secastilla valley, high in the foothills of the Pyrenees, is a hidden gem, with old Garnacha bush vines producing outstanding wines of exceptional intensity and character. Discovered by chance by our winemaker, the vineyard was tended for many years by an old man and his wife, Miranda. The breathtaking beauty of this stony, inhospitable vineyard surrounded by the snow capped Pyrenees casts a magical spell over every visitor.
Viñas del Vero Secastilla, Old Vine Garnacha, DO Somontano
Made from ancient bush vines, this is a unique and outstanding wine, quite different from the usual style of Somontano. Complex, earthy and spicy Garnacha fruit dominates the nose, followed by a rich and dense palate with intense fruit and balancing tannins and a long and powerful finish, enhanced by ageing in French Allier oak for ten months.
Viñas del Vero La Miranda de Secastilla Garnacha Blanca, DO Somontano
After hand picking the Garnacha Blanca grapes, a speciality of the area, the wine was fermented in French oak barrels and then matured for a further 4 months, to produce a highly aromatic wine with great citrus fruit on the nose, combined with a soft creamy palate and a crisp fresh finish.
Viñas del Vero La Miranda de Secastilla Garnacha, DO Somontano
The Garnacha bush vines are over 70 years old, yielding fruit with amazing concentration of flavour, the resulting wine is rich, intense and full of flavour. A deep cherry red colour, with ripe berry and floral aromas, and powerful ripe fruit flavours are complemented perfectly by toasty oak characters imparted during 8 months’ ageing in French barrels.
