Oxte The Silence, Red Blend, DOP Cariñena, Bodem Bodegas, 2017

Lot: 1250 Supplier: AXIAL VINOS S.L.U Country/Region: Other/other Major Grape: Tempranillo

It was Dutchman Louis Geirnaerdt's dream to build a winery, and after 30 years living and working with Spanish wines, that dream came to fruition. The winery is located in Cariñena, a region which Louis and his wife immediately felt connected to, and is named Bodem, meaning "soil" in Dutch. Their shared passion is for the Garnacha grape, which likely originated in what is now the Cariñena DO. Louis and co-owner Eugenie van Ekeris own seven hectares of vines and works with other local families on another 100 hectares. Oxte combines 25% Garnacha with 40% Tempranillo, 25% Syrah and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. It has sweet succulent fruit characters with a supple palate and a silky texture, finishing with flavours of black cherries and a hint of coffee. Each grape variety was fermented separately and after malolactic fermentation, the wines were matured in French and American oak barrels for three months.
