Hailing from the banks of the Ebro river this Garnacha is clean and bright in colour with red fruit and cherry aromas that follow through onto the palate. The soft tannins and balanced structure create a great food match for any red meat, roasted vegetable or cheese. No oak has touched this pure fruit forward number that is undeniably easy to drink and will brighten up any drab mid-week meal and can even handle a little spice.

The mid-week red to brighten up a dreary day and transport you back to your Spanish summer getaway.

The Producer

Founded in 1944 by 60 winegrowers from Cariñena region, the cooperative winery, then solely called Bodegas Gran Ducay specialized in the cava production. The Cava used to be made by craftsmen for the private consumption of the winery's 700 associates. Since these days the winery has expanded to producing still as well as sparkling wine. The Gran Ducay winery is still very much in production for sparkling wine but operations have been separated. Viña Zielo is produced by Bodega San Valero, the grapes are sourced from the heart of the Cariñena countryside, they produce a range of wines from native grapes.

Winemaking

The grapes are selected from the finest vineyards in the coop, harvested and transported to the winery for maceration and fermentation. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature for 8 days. This allows the winemakers to ensure that all the desired flavours are extracted and the desired levels of alcohol and tannin are met. Keeping a close eye on the fermentation enables the winemaker to encourage the bright cherry red colour, aromatic nose and mild, pleasant tannins.

The Region

In 1932, Cariñena obtained the first Designation of Origin in the Aragon region The region is placed in the middle valley of Ebro river that runs from the Cantabrian Mountains eastwards to the meet the Mediterranian sea between Barcelona and Valencia.
The soil, climate and altitude at Bodega San Valero lie between 400 and 800 m. These elements come together to turn this land into an excellent place for the winemaking and the microclimates in this area allow for many grapes to be grown.
The co-op's vineyards span 3500 hectares and are situated between the rivers Huerva and Jalón.

Blue Cheese Burgers with Sweet Potato Wedges

Burgers and red wine are a match made in heaven but don’t forget the blue cheese element which could scupper your wine choice. To contrast the creamy, salty notes of the cheese, head to full, fruity reds with good structure. Garnacha is a great option as it's higher alcohol and acidity will compliments the flavours and its red fruit flavours will balance the blue cheese.

Frikkadels: South African Meatballs

These South African spiced meatballs are an easy pairing for red wines - the beef and pork combination will suit most medium-bodied reds but head for fruit forward red with good structure. Spanish Garnacha works really well with the spices in this recipe.
