The Making of A Spanish Superstar: 2011 Gaznata Joven-Blending Project Pt. 2

01 Oct

Most of us don’t think twice about what is TRULY in our glass when we uncork a bottle of wine, pour, and sip. We simply enjoy and assume that whatever grape varietal we happen to be drinking is supposed to taste the same. Not only do varietals have…well…a variety of flavors, you’ll see huge differences from the grapes even when they’re grown in the same area? Who knew?

Yesterday I gave you a little background about one of the most killer Spanish wines I have ever had the privilege of tasting…the 2011 Gaznata Joven. I was even more privileged to have been included in the making of this wonderful wine.

Today’s video shows the education I received from Magnum Wines International Import Manager, Ashley Olbrys, Wendy Vallaster of New Spain Wines, and Winemaking genius Daniel Ramos about the many differences in the Garnacha grape of El Baracco, and how those differences will piece together to create the ‘perfect’ wine.

Hopefully this will make you take a moment to give your glass of wine a little extra appreciation before ‘knocking it back’.
