Selenita Garnatxa Negra 2019
Azul Y Garanza (AyG), is a three person wine co-op that produces wine from four regions in Spain; Jumilla, Navarra, Penedes, and Montsant. Each of the three talents focuses on each of the different regions, and in this case, Dani Nogue Sanchez, who started his wine journey in Montsant, has a special connection to Dit Celler.
From the first organically certified vineyard in the region, the fruit grows in the Sierra de Llaberia Natural Park from vines between 25-70 years of age. The Selenita Negre is a savoury blend of Garnaxta (Garnacha/Grenache) and Syrah. This is a rich expression of Grenache, yet there is a seriousness to it, with exquisite structure and depth. Spiced blueberry, ripe raspberry and licorice entice the nose while mineral-driven tannins of bitter dark chocolate, dried thyme and cracked pink peppercorn on the palate.
Get this wine if you are itching to open your BBQ. Now is the time! Pair with anything you are willing to throw on the grill: steak, burger, Portobello mushrooms, or even photos of your ex.
