GARNACHA AS THE INSPIRATION

Campos de Luz,
Garnacha and more

It all began with a search for Garnacha, hunting up and down the Ebro valley looking for a rough diamond. Quality. Flavour. Value. And above all, people.

Campos de Luz, the Place​

The River Ebro is the major river in the north-east of Spain and the largest river in Spain to run into the Mediterranean. Along its length there are many wine growing regions, many of them growing Garnacha, starting with the region of Rioja, below the city of Logroño. From there it flows through the lower part of Navarra and then on past Campo de Borja, Calatayud and Cariñena… way on down towards the Priorat (just 4km at the nearest point), Tarragona and to the sea.

Garnacha from the valley
of the Ebro, the mediterranean grape

The Ebro is one of Spain’s great wine rivers. It winds its way through and past many wine regions, like Rioja, Navarra and Priorat, but also the lesser-known Cariñena, in the province of Aragón. 

Along its length, Garnacha has been grown for many generations, and is still the key variety for the DO Cariñena, where it makes up 60% of all vineyards.

In many regions, this variety has been substituted by many farmers by Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon, reacting to market trends to the extent that little more than half of the original old vineyards of Garnacha remain, giving small bunches of intensely fruity grapes capable of producing excellent wines with a marked personality and soft tannins – just what the market is looking for!

THE VINEYARD

The vineyard is one single estate of 150 Ha. Part of it is planted with 40 to 80 year Garnacha bush vines and another part is more recently planted, including plots of Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah, Tempranillo, Muscat and Chardonnay. The Macabeo we use comes from cooler, mountain vineyards about 5 km away. All new plantations, including those of Garnacha, are trained using a Cordon Royat system which allows mechancial harvesting and have drip irrigation systems installed to allow the ripening process to be perfectly controlled.

WINE-MAKING

Built in 2003, the winery is located at one end of this large estate. This winery has all the latest technology and is designed for ease of work to ensure efficient production, keeping costs to a minimum. On the outside, the architectural style of the winery harks back to the Mudejar style, which reached its peak in Aragón in the fifteenth century.

Campos de Luz White

The traditional white varieties in this region are limited to Viura and Muscat. With the addition of the correct amount of Chardonnay, we add body to the backbone of acidity of the Viura and the floral aromatics of the Muscat.

Campos de Luz Rosé

The traditional red variety of the Ebro valley, Garnacha, can be light and fruity as well as full and rich. With a skin contact that is measured in minutes rather than hours, a faint but pretty rosé colour is achieved.

Campos de Luz Garnacha

Over time the fresh fruit flavours of Garnacha become richer and with a longer ageing in American oak, a deeper complexity is added, with hints of spices and a certain smokiness.
