REGION Sierra de Gredos Spain ( Madrid)
Lively - Racey - Red Fruit
This is the first vintage from these guys and it's incredibly impressive !
This is lively and energetic - easy to drink and very smooth with cherry & cranberry notes bursting with fresh fruits.
Vicky and Nahuel met as sommeliers at the 3 Michelin star Martín Berasategui restaurant in San Sebastian. After 5 years there they decided to take their passion for wine to the next level and hung up their sommelier suits to become winemakers. Long fans of Fabio Bartolomei’s (Vinos Ambiz) energetic and pure wines, they spoke to Fabio who decided to support the young couple, providing them with equipment and a space to make wine in his cellar in El Tiemblo. In exchange Vicky and Nahuel help Fabio out with some work around the cellar.
Though their first vintage was miniscule, Vicky and Nahuel have since managed to take on 6 hectares around the Gredos villages of El Tiemblo and El Barraco. Small hilly parcels of bush vines planted on granite between 700 and 1000 metres above sea level. They are working with indigenous varieties Garnacha, Moscatel, Albillo and Airén and their wines are exceptionally exciting and promising. Full of life, character and energy that transmits this wild and sometimes extreme granite terroir. Summers here are hot and dry but the elevation brings a decided fresh quality to these concentrated and expressive wines
