Cellars Unió "Clos del Pinell" Garnacha Negra Terra Alta DO 2019
This fine restaurant-quality imported wine is not available at LCBO stores.
Rolando's Tips: (1) If you like Pinot Noir and/or Sicilian Frappato, give this similar Spanish wine a try! (2) It's a food wine. Drink it with meals, such as those suggested below. The pairings will bring out its qualities and enhance your enjoyment...and so will the serving temperature tip below.
Grape Variety: 100% red Garnacha.
Origin: Tarragona, Cataluña, Spain.
Aging: No oak aging.
Tasting Notes: Bright cherry-red colour. Aroma of strawberries and cherries, with balsamic notes. In the mouth, it is dry and fresh, on the lighter side of medium bodied, and quite fruity with notes of cherry cough drops and a hint of almond.
Food Pairing: Perfect accompaniment to a charcuterie and cheese board. Goes well with tomato-and-cheese-based pasta dishes and pizza (like Margherita pizza); seared duck, salmon or tuna; grilled lamb, pork, or beef, notably went well with pork chops and pork back ribs; meaty stews and casseroles; slightly spicy dishes like Channa Masala; pasta, gnocchi, or polenta with lightly-spicy tomato sauce with mushrooms and garlic; and goat cheese.
Serving Temperature: Chilling it in the fridge for half an hour before serving will bring out the sweet tannins in this wine.
