Tres Ojos is made at the Bodega San Gregorio, a cave co-op founded in 1965. The winery is located in the Ribota River Valley, some 15 kilometers north of the city of Calatayud. Most of the vines are at least 40 years old and some are 50+. The vines, planted “en vaso”(head-trained) are not irrigated, offering very low production levels. Local soils are rich in limestone, marl and slate.
Tres Ojos" means "Three Eyes", named after a local bridge in the city of Calatayud with three arches.
The wine has a brick red color with a bouquet of red raspberries, spice and white pepper. The palate is incredibly concentrated and rich. The modern styles of Garnacha in Spain are continuously being perceived worldwide as wines of extraordinarily good quality. This wine is fruity, juicy and shows a great depth, ripe tannins, length but yet with wonderful elegance and lightness.
"This 100% Old Vines Garnacha is sourced from 40- to 50-year-old vines. Fermenting for seven days followed by a 14-day maceration on the skins, it is aged 12 months in stainless steel vats. In the glass this wine is dark red with aromas of bitter cherries, raspberries, and mulled spice. In the mouth, bitter cherries again appear with juicy blackberries and a nice amount of cracked pepper. Tangy and tannic this wine finishes with a medium acidity and begs for another taste. Another great value."
