Description

Officially this is a declassified wine coming from Sierra de Gredos (Ávila). Vineyards in Gredos are just amazing and share few common features: high altitude, steep hills, decomposed granite soils topped by sand. Biodiversity here rules with orchards and pine forests. Some of them are trained as low density bush vines (en vaso in Spanish). At roughly 850 meters’ altitude, the continental climate is fierce here with crazily cold windy winters and hot dry summers. Gredos is the new Eldorado for the new wave of Spanish producers seeking terroir driven wines.

WINE REGION Sierra de Gredos, Castilla-León

ALTITUDE 850 mt above the seal level

SOILS Clay, sand and granitic (no chemicals sprayed). Two vineyards from Sotillo de la Adrada (Tietar Valley). Sulfur and other preparations are used according the vintage’s growing season.

VARIETAL 100% Jaen. This is an obscure grape variety cultivated in few corners in Castilla y Leon. Guess what …it’s almost impossible to find wines with this grape in the US.

WINE DESCRIPTION Nose of hay and yellow fruits and flowers. Nice peach and apricot flavors with an intense streak of stone minerality and salinity powering through it.

SERVICE TEMPERATURE 10-12 °C

FOOD PAIRING Great with salads, white pasta, seafood, delicate fish, grilled chicken and fresh cheeses
