Overview

Os Cantals is an old vineyard of Garnacha estimated to be around 70 years old. Located at an elevation of 700m above sea level and featuring iron-rich sandy and clay soil covered in slate, this is a darker style of Garnacha with a lift of herbal aromas and a hint of orange peel freshness in the finish. While the tannins are firm, as one would expect from such a site, they are well-rounded and provide the framework on which the wine’s flavors express themselves.
