Bodegas Exeo, the brainchild of Carlos Fernández, champions an avant-garde approach to grape varieties and production techniques in Rioja, one of the most traditional wine growing regions in Spain. Instead of the small production being centered around Tempranillo, Fernández chooses to focus on regional outliers, white and red Garnacha. His production methods are adapted year-to-year and incorporate enough skin contact and concrete to grab the attention of any enthusiastic wine geek. The end results are wines known for their pure expression of fruit, minimal to no reliance on oak, and innate ability to transmit minerality and earth to the tastebuds.
This wine has an incredibly juicy palate. The wine is well structured with flavors of fresh and fragrant red berries, forest floor and a dusty minerality.
Pair it With:
The high intensity flavors of Grenache match well with roasted meats, roasted vegetables and foods spiced with Asian 5-spice and cumin.
