Es Lo Que Hay 2018

El Escoces Volante

Case Format: 1x75cl

In the past, ES LO QUE HAY has been made from contract grapes from the villages Acered and Alarba. For the 2018 vintage they have changed to 100% family-owned old vines in vineyards around the villages of Villarroya de la Sierra and Cervera de la Cañada. All practices in these vineyards are organic. Yields were 2.15 tonnes per hectare.



Ferran Centelles

On the nose, the fruit is somehow riper than I am used to tasting from Norrel. Black rather than red fruits, super-clean with a graphite and truffle note. On the palate, the concept remains about smoothness. Mouth-watering acidity, almost salty. A less-extracted vintage. It is a pure and sincere wine with a magical fruity soul, a Garnacha that totally fills your palate with fresh fruit. (FC)

Luis Gutiérrez

The red 2018 Es Lo Que Hay, comes from a vintage Norrel Robertson describes as "one of the standout years in our 17 years producing Garnacha." This is mostly Garnacha, with just 5% other grapes, as it comes exclusively from two old vineyards in the village of Villarroya de la Sierra, and such vineyards always have a small proportion of other grapes, mostly Moristel with a little Miguel de Arco and some Provechón (Bobal). All the varieties fermented together destemmed after a five-day cold soak with the natural yeasts and then matured in Flextank egg for 15 months. This is softer, with more clay and limestone influence rather than the slate soils from the vineyards used in the past for the cuvée. This has more depth and complexity, perhaps from the other grape varieties that complement the Garnacha, and probably has a little more acidity and tannin. It has tension, minerality and good acidity, probably from the Moristel, which tends to ripen a little later than the Garnacha. Tasty. Again, not a shy wine at 15% alcohol but nicely balanced. 3,966 bottles were filled in March 2020.
