TASTING NOTE:

Another exceptional offering from Viñedos de Alcohuaz. RHU is a blend of Syrah (73%), Garnacha and Petite Syrah, grown at well over 1700 metres altitude on the granite slopes of the Andes. The grapes are trodden in stone lagares prior to vinification. Tenser, denser and less forthcoming than its sibling younger GRUS, this calls for decanting to reveal the full extent of its complexity. On the nose, any hint of reduction quickly dissipates, replaced by peppery, granitic notes, with a wave of sweet red fruit just behind. The palate is fresh, voluminous and exceptionally concentrated.
