Red Wine, 100% Garnacha. Wine from Madrid.
This Garnacha single-varietal is made in the foothills of the Sierra de Gredos with grapes from vineyards located 950 meters above sea level. Vineyard planted in 1959.
Poor weathered granitic soils with sandy texture, high soil depth and little organic matter. With a very low yield, we are talking about 35 hectoliters per hectare. It was harvested manually in September and selection takes place in the vineyard and in the winery.
The grapes are vinified without de-stemming and in a non-interventionist way. Spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts at mild and controlled temperatures. Aged for 14 months in French oak barrels and 6 months in bottle. Bottled in February 2018.
Intense garnet color. On the nose it is pure red fruit, pomegranate, citrus fruits such as blood orange, a touch of meatier fruit, such as plums, raspberries, and a refreshing touch of sage and rosemary. The palate is charming, fleshy tannin, long, grainy and present, almost chewy and whose memory is intoxicating. Cherry flavors and the fresh part of the laurel. Long and very pleasant.
Optimal consumption until approximately 2026 if kept in good condition.
Uvas Felices was born from the association of several renowned winemakers in Spain. Its objective is to join efforts to present wines from different Spanish regions and protected under the cloak of the distributor Vila Viniteca. The wine projects that make up Uvas Felices are Ca N’Estruc, L’Origan, El perro verde, Fenomenal, El Jardín de Lucía, Sospechoso, Venta Las Vacas, Paisajes, La Locomotora, Viña Beside the House and El Hombre Bala.
In most cases these projects have a history that goes back centuries (as is the case of Ca N’Estruc, which dates from 1548), and in other cases they are recently founded wineries.
Much of the success of these projects lies in the wide variety of grapes and soils with which they work.
