Winemaker Notes

Cherry red color and covered coat. Exhibits fresh red fruit with smoky and mineral notes. Over time it develops aromas of Mediterranean underbrush, spices and black fruits. It enters fresh and silky, giving way in the mouth to well-melted tannins, fresh acidity and tasty fruit.
100% organic, Garnacha Tintorera from vineyards of more than 25 years.

James Suckling
Intense aromas of blackberry, black pepper and black walnut follow through to a full body with chewy tannins and a lightly austere finish. I like the contrast of juicy fruit and chewy tannins. From organically grown grapes. Drink now.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2018 Ternario 2 is pure Garnacha Tintorera from a large plot of ungrafted 22-year-old vines on clay and limestone soils at 750 meters above sea level. Part of the grapes from this large plot are used for this wine and other parts for the Ternario 10. It fermented in concrete with part of full clusters and had a long maceration. It matured in an oak vat and used 225-, 300- and 500-liter oak barrels for 10 months. This has a lot less oak than the 2017 and is more approachable and expressive. It has nice aromatics, with some flowers and Mediterranean herbs, and a chalky texture with the vibrant sensation and added freshness of the 2018 vintage. It combines some dusty tannins and juicy fruit. These are impressive Garnacha Tintorera bottlings with unusual finesse. 20,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2020.

Bodegas Venta La Vega, Spain
Bodegas Venta La Vega Almansa Winery Image

In the foothills of the legendary mountains of Almansa, known as El Mugrón, are the largest single planting of the Garnacha Tintorera vines in Europe. This privileged location has abundant water and excellent soil, with a micro-climate that guarantees conditions suitable to the organic production of the singular wines of Bodegas Venta la Vega Territorio Ecologico. The estate includes more than 850 hectares of organic farm land in the mountainous limestone soils of Almansa. Altitudes of 1200 meters encourage the creation of distinct, natural micro-climates that enable the land to be farmed without the use of any chemical treatments or additives.

 

This is a personal project of the renowned oenologist from the Bierzo region, Raúl Pérez. José Ángel Martínez, who made his winemaking fame, much like Laura Ramos, on the Envinate project, works closely with Raúl managing the daily operations. Venta La Vega’s greatest expression is found in “Ternario,” a limited collection of three progressively more evolved organic wines that are all based on the essence of the native variety, Garnacha Tintorera.

 

Venta la Vega also produces the delightful introductory “Adaras” range. Wines with a distinct flavor that blend the Garnacha Tintorera and Monastrell varieties, a combination that offers a magnificent interpretation of the Almansa region.

The Moors gave it the name, ‘Manxa,’ which fittingly means ‘parched earth.’ La Mancha, the largest Spanish wine producing region in all of Spain, is one of its hottest and driest. Sturdy and drought-resistant white varieietes like Airen, Viura and Verdejo thrive in this environment.

The most famous of the rare, red-fleshed grape varieties, Alicante Bouschet is known as a Teinturier grape. While most red grapes have red skin but clear flesh or pulp, the French, Alicante Bouschet and the Georgian (country) variety called, Saperavi, both have red. These make intensely hued, full-bodied red wines that take to oak well and can stand some time in the cellar. Somm Secret—While originally the product of a French crossing (Petit Bouschet and Grenache) of the late 1800s, today Alicante Bouchet grows widely in Spain and is gaining notoriety in Portugal.
